Walkers are Welcome Patron visits Wellington
Wellington Walkers are Welcome were delighted to welcome the Walkers are Welcome National Patron, Kate Ashbrook, to Wellington yesterday. She was there primarily for the Telford T50 50-mile Trail’s 5th anniversary celebration on Saturday, but, on Sunday, did the honours of putting in a waymark at the start of Telford Coronation walk no 9. The project is run by the Friends of the Telford T50, but Wellington WaW are responsible for this route. It explores the Ercall which is famous for its unconformity, where the Ercall Granophyre meets the sedimentary Wrekin Quartzite. Wellington is proud to be part of Telford, which has an unjust reputation, as it is home to The Wrekin (an old hill fort and well known to Midlanders in the phrase “going all round The Wrekin”), the world’s first iron bridge, Blists Hill victorian town , and many nature reserves and open spaces.
