We have two aims:

 to promote the interests of local walkers in Wellington;

to promote Wellington to walkers elsewhere.

Wellington Walking Festival 

 September 13th to 19th 2021 

There will be more details later.  We are planning a mixture of themed walks and just walks. We also hope to have some sort of celebration of our 10th festival.

The information below relates to the 2020 festival


The 2020 festival has now finished , we were able to go ahead with the walks. The litter pick and our 10th Anniversary celebration were  cancelled. 

Our walks were exempt from the "rule of six" , see the September national news letter for our justification for this.


The  main theme was "Wellington's Ways"  we  used all the named routes that pass through or near  Wellington at least once during  the week.  There were other walks too and 2 showings of "The Way" at Wellington Orbit.

The  printed programme is here, it was  

available from shops in Wellington including

Morrison's, Seaton's, Perry's, Bath Bombs,

Wellington Station and the Halfway House on

The Wrekin. They were also in the Museum of the 

Gorge and the Toll House on the Ironbridge.

We think the week went well. There are several posts

with photos on the Facebook page and many of the

photos are also here,

There is a report from the secretary's perspective here.
