Our activities include:
Path maintenance

Our printed programme of group walks and path maintenance activities are currently cancelled due to Corona virus.

However, we are offering walks as permitted from July 1st according to guidelines from the Government and from The Ramblers. We are adopting a cautious approach with the safety of leaders and participants in mind and for the time being we are not publishing an advance programme of walks. We will arrange walks, one or two dates at a time. Details will be posted a few days in advance on the Ramblers website, the T&ES website and on our Facebook page.  We hope to offer a choice of a shorter or more local walk and another longer walk in other parts of Shropshire, on our normal walking days which are Thursdays and Sundays. Participants will be limited to 5 walkers only + the leader. Booking with the leader is essential. You cannot just turn up because of the number restriction.

As we develop this new way of organising group walks, we will keep you informed. there is more local information about Corona on our website. 

However, we are continuing to work in other ways to improve the walking environment in Telford and East Shropshire for everyone in our locality.

Telford and East Shropshire Ramblers helps local people enjoy walking in one of the most beautiful and interesting places in England. You are very welcome to come along, put on your boots and enjoy the great outdoors with us. Come along to our free AGM Social Event 19 November, a great evening for members and non members to find out more about us over food and drinks plus interesting guest speaker!

We organise regular walks, led by our friendly local volunteers who know the best places to explore. It's great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. We explore interesting and historic towns, villages, parks, canals, rivers, countryside and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in and around Telford, The Shropshire Hills and beyond. 

We encourage car sharing and offer lifts to most walks from Telford Forge Retail Park (FRP) check leaving times; we meet opposite the Furniture Village store, by the green fire assembly point GR SJ693094.

Bring a snack, drink, and packed lunch, weather proof clothing and robust footwear with you. Boots are needed for walks in open country. 

We campaign for improvements to our rights of way network. Our paths maintenance team helps keep our paths clear and open. We work with local councils to protect our footpaths and open new routes.
