Wellington produce free walk guides
Wellington Walkers Are Welcome have produced 2 free walking guides as part of their on-going project “Wellington 360”. The guides provide illustrated instructions for 12 circular walks which can be combined to create longer routes.
Walks covered by the “Northern Routes” guide all start from Wellington’s Market Square close to the town’s Railway and Bus Stations. The 5 walks visit Wrockwardine Village, Admaston, Dothill Local Nature Reserve, Apley Woods & Pool and Hadley Locks.
The second guide, entitled “Wrockwardine Walks”, picks up from the “Northern Walks” guide and provides 7 further routes ranging from short strolls around the village to longer circular walks via Tiddie Cross, Allscott, Admaston, Bratton as well as an optional loop from Allscot to visit Thomas Telford’s famous Aqueduct at Longdon on Tern.
For those who like longer walks, selecting routes from both guides can provide a self-guided circular walk all the way from Wellington Market Square to the Aqueduct at Longdon.
Copies of both guides are available from Wellington Civic Offices, Leisure Centre & Library and from other shops and outlets within the town. They can also be downloaded from the group’s website at www.wellingtonwalkersarewelcome.org.uk
The aim of the Wellington 360 project is to encourage people to explore the many areas of interest around the town itself safe in the knowledge that they will be returned to the Market Square at the end of their walk.
