Walk & Cycle

Wellington is a great place for starting a walk or a cycle ride, and local groups LA21 and Walkers Are Welcome have produced some fantastic guides to point you in the right direction. Follow the links below and see which routes take your fancy.

Heritage trails around town: Wellington is a modest place – there’s no castle and no abbey – but there’s a story around every corner. With these two guides from Wellington LA21, you can get behind the modern shop fronts to find out about the events and individuals who made our town over several centuries.

Country walks: These routes put together by Wellington’s Walkers Are Welcome group take you up and around The Wrekin, through The Ercall Nature Reserve and the Limekiln Woods.

Walk A: To the top of The Wrekin (3.5 miles one way)

Walk B: Around The Wrekin (7.5 miles)

Walk C: Ercall Wood (3 miles and 4 miles options)

Walk D: Limekiln Wood (3 miles and 5 miles options)

On two wheels: LA21’s cycle trails start in the centre of Wellington and head off in various directions, taking in not only the undulating terrain around The Wrekin south-west of the town, but also the Tern Valley and the Weald Moors to the north.
