Getting There

A circular walk connecting the ancient Shropshire market town of Wellington to the former estate of the wardens of the Wrekin Forest at Dothill Local Nature Reserve. En-route the trail offers fine views of the famous Shropshire landmark, passing through the historic village of Wrockwardine, the former spa resort of Admaston and the impressive grounds of an old stately home at Apley Park. ACCESS: The route is largely level with several gentle gradients around Wrockwardine and a total ascent of just 157 metres. There is some road walking where you will be sharing the highway with vehicular traffic on public roads between Wellington, Wrockwardine and Admaston. On several paths, walkers also share joint access with cyclists. There is a kissing gate to negotiate within Apley Woods, along with five flights of steps. In spring and summer, Dothill Local Nature Reserve and Apley Woods are significant local sites for breeding birds, especially wildfowl. Please keep dogs under control at all times and do not allow them to disturb the local wildlife. Allow 2.5 to 3 hours. FACILITIES: Tourist information, a cafe and public toilets (which can only be accessed during booking office opening hours) are available at Wellington rail station. Pay toilets are located at the bus station on The Parade, while free facilities are available at Wellington Civic Centre in Larkin Way. Cafes, restaurants and pubs can also be found across Wellington town centre, and in Admaston village.

GETTING THERE: The walk starts and finishes at Wellington rail station, making it ideal for arriving by public transport. If you are coming by car, the station only has a small car park for rail users, so the best parking is a long stay pay-and-display car park accessed from Tan Bank (the Belmont-Tan Bank Car Park), just a short walk from the station. Approximate post code for this parking, TF1 1HJ.
