Resources for Walking
New - contact us for bespoke advice on getting to work on foot or by cycle. We know Telford quite well as walkers and cyclists, and, if we don't know your part of Telford, we have friends that do. You could use Facebook, email or our contact form. We can produce a map as a line on an image, a gpx file or with audible instructions for a smart phone app.
Even though our organised events have been cancelled, this is a great time to get out walking in the countryside as there is a low risk of coming into close contact with others, which is what we all need to avoid now, to stop the virus spreading. Walking is a safe way to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors. Just start from your own doorstep or travel in your own car, by yourself or with your household members. If you see someone when walking, just keep 2 metres apart and enjoy your walk. New extra links added to the routes page.
You can download our walk leaflets, which contain maps and step by step instructions of how to follow the route, from here. This page also includes links to some other local walks. You can usually pick up our leaflets from Morrison's in Wellington.
We made a cautious restart to activities by holding a booking only, socially distanced, walk on Sunday June 21st . The walk was advertised to the mailing list.
We had announced that the 2020 Wellington Walking Festival would be held from September 14th to 20th. We are still continuing planning but we don't know yet what will happen.
We were heavily involved in the Get Telford Walking event on May 19th , 2019, which was run by the Telford T50 50 Mile Trail consortium . The trail was launched on June 16th 2018 in Telford Town Park. The Friends of the Telford T50 50 Mile Trail was launched successfully on April 16th, 2019. The next venture was to have been Get Telford Walking 2020, in May 2020 but this has been cancelled. When we have more information it will appear here.
