News & Information Updates

NEWS FLASH: Consortium including TES Ramblers wins over £2000 funding to develop new local walking route.

Telford 50 logo final goldTo mark Telford's 50th birthday anniversary celebrations we are launching a new 50 mile walking route to link Telford's open green spaces.

The Telford 50 - 50 Route will be a circular long walking route starting from Telford Town Park. It will join up with all the major long distance paths that cross the Telford and Wrekin Local Authority from north to south and east to west. Wherever you live in the Local Authority you will only be a short walk away from the path and will be able to use the route to get to anwhere else in Telford and Wrekin. We have been given £1700 from T & W Council and £650 from EnviroGrant, Veolia's Environmental Fund, to help develop the route, support it with a website and leaflets and launch it at a mass walk event 16 June 2018. You can read more about this exciting project on the footpaths section of this website

Hutchinson Way 2Information update: Telford & East Shropshire Ramblers adoption of the Hutchison Way

Our Footpath Maintenance Group looked after The Hutchison Way during 2017, clearing undergowth, improving signage and reporting  problems to Telford & Wrekin Council. This important long distance footpath (pictured left) links the towns of Wellington and Newport and connects with the Silkin Way: using these two paths one can walk on green ways to any part of Telford & Wrekin. Our work got a mention on the Telford Facebook page with before and after photos. Read more about the footpaths maintenance group's work on their section of this website. We want to continue to improve this route during 2018. Please continue to report problems to us.
