Walks from Wellington

Long distance paths passing through Wellington

The Shropshire Way is being rebranded as a 120 mile Southern circular route which pases through Wellington and was launched during our walking festival on Tuesday 12th Sept. The main route is now way-marked using a white buzzard symbol on a orange background. The local section now comes from Roddington, through Allscot Mill then Bratton and through the centre of Wellington. it then ascends the Wrekin, crosses the summit, continues over Little Hill and descends to a minor road which it follows to Little Wenlock. Planned is a 70 mile Northern main route circular, also based on Shrewsbury, with a spur to Whitchurch.
We arranged funding for the printing of the former local sections through the Ramblers Worldwde Holidays partnership. Here are Section 16 Ironbridge to The Wrekin (still current) and Section 17 The Wrekin to Haughmond Hill (the old route)

The Hope House Way is a 335 mile (539km) long-distance walk through mid Wales and the Marches. It is a circular route, with its official start and finish by the Community Clock in the Market Square in Wellington. The route was created by the Rotary Club of The Wrekin in order to raise funds for the Hope House Children's Hospices. The start of the route ascends The Wrekin, and continues down the ridge on the Shropshire Way route. It follows the Shropshire Way towards Little Wenlock. The end of the route also passes over The Wrekin.

The Hutchison Way is a 19 mile (30km) route from Wellington to Newport. It is named in honour of late former Chief Executive of (the then) Wrekin Council, David Hutchison. It is way-marked using named maroon arrows on a white disc. The route starts outside Wellington Town Civic and Leisure Centre. It goes to the foot of The Wrekin, skirts the base of the Ercall and continues via the Golf course to Steeraway Farm. It then heads off in the direction of Telford Town Centre.

The Silkin Way is a 14 mile (22km) walking and cycling route, partly on the line of old railway tracks, running across Telford from north to south. It starts at Bratton, just north of Wellington and goes through Dothill, passing just behind the Princess Royal Hospital on its way to Leegomery. It eventually arrives via Telford Town Centre, at Coalport in the Ironbridge Gorge.

About Us

This page has been prepared by Wellington Walkers are Welcome Management Committee. This is an ad hoc group of interested local walkers. We are not a party political organisation; we have supporters of a range of political parties, and none, on our management committee who work effectively together. The inspiration for the group came from a combination of Wellington LA21 group and Wellington Town Council without whose help this would not have been possible.
