Walkers are Welcome

Walkers are welcome here for regular guided walks or to explore the area at their leisure. From the summit of The Wrekin, 1300 feet above sea level, you will enjoy spectacular views in all directions from Cheshire to Worcestershire, Wales to the West Midlands.

Wellington has achieved Walkers are Welcome status, one of 100 places across the UK, which has something special to offer walkers. Membership of the network helps strengthen the area’s reputation as a place for people to come and enjoy the outdoors and helps ensure that footpaths and facilities for walkers are maintained in good condition, benefiting local residents and visitors alike.

The nearby towns of Ironbridge and Much Wenlock have been granted a similar status ensuring the region is very much on the walking enthusiasts list of places where they can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome.
