We have two aims:

 to promote the interests of local walkers in Wellington;

to promote Wellington to walkers elsewhere.

   2020 Wellington Walking Festival ,September 14th to 20th. 

The festival has now finished , we were able to go ahead with the walks. The litter pick and our 10th Anniversary celebration were  cancelled. 

We think it went well, there is a link to a report on  the Festival page .

Our 2020 AGM will be held on 29th October by Zoom. Formal invitation to members  has gone out.  See the events page to register.

Resources for Walking

You can still 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. 

This is still 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. To make information easier to find we have added 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. 

A new version of the Wellington Walking Map was published in 2019, containing  a total of 10 main routes and 3 alternatives. There is also a guide to the Makers Dozen Mural Trail 

The file is here
