Path Issues and Path Maintenance

We normally hold 2 path maintenance session a month, on the 1st & 3rd Thursday mornings.

If you wish to join our path maintenance team please contact the team organiser on

He will add you to the circulation list and send you full details of when and where to meet.   

All of our Path Team members are registered under the Telford and Wrekin Council Volunteer Scheme.

All tools are provided, but you will probably prefer to bring your own work gloves.

Please use the same address to let us know of any paths in the Wellington and surrounding areas that need attention.

We will assess the problem and try to obtain 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.

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 

    • Bratton

  • Parts of longer routes passing through Wellington​
