Getting There

NOTE: This walk is currently closed because it intersects with an archery shooting range on property. As this site is a designated National Sports Centre, DOGS are currently NOT ALLOWED in the grounds or gardens of Lilleshall. A circular walk around the beautiful gardens and grounds of Lilleshall National Sports and Conferencing Centre near Telford in Shropshire. Set in spectacular and secluded surroundings, Lilleshall is one of the UK's National Sports Centres, training grounds and centres of excellence for the country's leading sportsmen and women. This route gives you chance to test your fitness, taking you through the woodland belts alongside the estate's 2 mile sweeping drive, before returning (a steady climb all the way!) to explore the heart of the estate. You will have chance to discover Lilleshall's many gems including the golden gates (an exact replica of those at Buckingham Palace), the Italian water garden, the pet cemetery and the world-class sport facilities. The walk includes one long, steady descent and the equivalent ascent and you will also need to negotiate a couple of gates plus several flights of steps. The route follows a mixture of garden surfaced paths and un-made woodland and meadow paths, the latter of which can be uneven underfoot and very muddy at times. One section of the route follows a quiet country lane, so take care of any occasional traffic here. There is a cafe bar, Queens Bar, at the start of the route to allow you to enjoy refreshments before or after your walk. Please note that dogs are NOT allowed in the grounds. You are likely to come across free roaming peacocks within the grounds. Approximate time 3 hours.

Lilleshall National Sports and Conferencing Centre is located just north of Telford close to the A41, approximately 3 miles from the town of Newport. The main entrance gates to the centre are situated on Pave Lane, which can be accessed from the north via the A518 and from the south via the A41. In both cases please follow the signs for National Sports Centre. Once you have passed through the entrance gates, the centre is accessed via the two mile sweeping driveway and free parking is available in the visitor car park. Approximate post code for Sat Nav TF10 9LQ.

Very nice varied walk, ending with tour of hall gardens and sports facilities. Archery tournament was underway when we were there. Pete and Alicia, August 13th 2017
