A walk of variety incorporating sections of the new TelfordT50 trail and the Shropshire Way, with many views and history. We head west from Horsehay, satellite village of Telford, over rolling countryside and woods to The Wrekin. We go round its lower slopes** and east for a lunchtime stop at the Huntsman in the hilltop village of Little Wenlock. We then go southeast to Loamhole Dingle (nearly as far as Coalbrookdale), and make our way back via Lightmoor and Spring Village. (11.67 miles; 1730’ ascent)
** There is an option for the most nimble to go over the Wrekin and down the other side (NB a steep extra 450’ ascent, and very steep 600’ descent)
