What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
Why not come and join us to celebrate the groups 500th event since the group started all of those years ago. We will be going for that celebratory drink after the walk and you are all very welcome to join us if you can. We will be walking along canal towpaths and open countryside. We walk to Edgmond and pass a Chapel at Longford. On a clear day you will be able to have great views of the Wrekin and of the Lilleshall Monument. This walk will take 2hrs. There might be mud in places especially after rain fall, walking boots are recommended. There is a 7 minute walk along a quiet lane. There are a couple of stiles to get over and kissing gates to walk through. There are no steep hills just gradual inclines to walk up. You might like to bring something to eat and drink, weather permitting we can have a few minutes break at the top of Aston Hill.
Just a gentle reminder with all of Telford Walkers walks we would appreciate a voluntary donation of 50p per walk. This is to cover the meetup Administration costs. Many thanks
We will make our way along the old canal heading towards Edgmond through fields where we then walk through the village of Edgmond. The paths then take us towards Longford where we pass a Chapel.
A small amount of lane walking heading then onto Aston Hill where on a clear day we can get the great views of the Wrekin and of the Lilleshall Monument.
From there we make our way down a quiet lane heading back towards Newport and then onto the car park, then onto the New Inn or similar for that well earned drink.
Relatively flat walking along a dismantled railway and field paths with some walking on quiet lanes. Walking boots recommended for muddy sections around Bury Ring.Parking is restricted in Haughton so we will be on the lookout for a bigger parking area in Derrington for a future group walk.
This is a 6 mile walk starting from the village hall at 10am in the small town of Myddle near Shrewsbury (postcode is SY4 3RP). There will be fields and lanes to navigate which can get a bit muddy so good footwear and appropriate gear is necessary. There is the occasional awkward stile to cross. There are no major hills just undulating countryside so easy/moderate walking. We have to cross a busy road in one or two places so care is necessary. We will take a short stop halfway as usual for snacks and drinks. After the walk there is the Red Lion pub for drinks/food if you wish. This is right next to the parking area and there is an outside seating area if you have brought a dog.
There is also parking in the town streets if necessary. Myddle is to the north of Shrewsbury just off the A528.
This is a new walk not done before and is different from the Myddle Round and Myddle Gough 6 walks we have so far completed though some parts of the routes overlap.
The walk begins in the archetypal English village, Wheaton Aston, and goes across some of the finest farmland in the county. The walk continues through the beautiful splendour of Lapley village including the church, passing the rolling fields and ending with a walk along the historic 'Shroppie' canal. Total distance is approaching 7.5 miles and the walk will take 3 to 4 hours.
Parking: We start from The Village Hall car park, Hawthorne Road in Wheaton Aston. Postcode is ST19 9NG. If this gets filled there is overflow parking in the side roads nearby.
Refreshments after at the Hartley Arms, Wheaton Aston just along the main road. There are no major hills and only the occasional stile.
