It is possible. It's not overly far but would still consume a relatively disproportionate amount of time compared to using a vehicle Due to the distance a taxi fare would be very reasonable. As an ex-local I would advise taking a taxi over walking every time.

My edit didn't work. It's about two miles and the time will be 40 mins walking vs 5 mins in a cab. It's pretty hilly, both downhill and uphill.

It's not a particularly scenic walk ... mostly roads without pavements or housing estate roads.

There is a scenic way of doing it with a bit of a detour;

If you leave the museum and take the path on the left before you get to the road (downhill). This will take you through an 80 Metre tunnel the old canal used to run, then if you continue on down the path you will come to the Tar Tunnel (it is signed), then directly to your left there are some steps you should go up (these run along the incline way and you have a great view of the old track). The top of this incline way is a path continuing up the hill across a field. This will take you to Sutton Hill. Upon reaching Sutton Hill turn right and follow the road to the Golf and Country Club. All in all should take no longer than 1 Hr.

Hope this helps

Yes, I've just done it. You walk down from the hotel to Silkin Way. Turn right for the Victorian town, turn left and then drop down to the China museum. From there you can walk along the river to Ironbridge. All in all very pleasant walking.
