on the events page.  We have started these again and will start advertising them

We will try to get permission to clear any local paths reported to us.

In Telford & Wrekin you can  report blocked and obstructed paths and missing signposts on the Council's website using  'report a rights of way' problem. You can also report footpath problems as you walk around with photos on a mobile phone by downloading The Everyday Telford App.

We are  the proud possessors of a brush cutter. There are some photos of the results of its recent uses here.

Things have  definitely got  better on our paths since we were formed in 2010. There are more signs , more walkable paths and, crucially, more walkers.

Paths we have cleared include these:

  • Paths in Wellington itself

    • Alongside the railway line from Mill  Lane and the other way towards Leegomery

    • The path from Christine Avenue to the motorway bridge on Ercall Lane

    • The path behind Roseway

    • The Wrekin Link  from Admaston to Powder Lane

    • The path from the Dawley Rd through the top end of Arleston Village to Arleston Lane

    • Woodlands Avenue to Hollies Road

  • Slightly further afield​

    • Allscott

    • Wrockwardine

    • Rushmoor
