Haughmond Abbey ruins

Stage 10a: Wellington to Haughmond Hill

This stage begins with a new route through Wellington enabling the walker to see the older areas which are now part of Telford New Town. Wellington is a Walkers are Welcome town and has its own Walking Festival in September.

Download a guide for the new route from Ercall Wood, through Wellington to Isombridge. This is a .zip file with two files giving a choice of direction.

Route changes: there are three route changes on this stage, at Hunkington Farm, Hunkington Reservoir and Haughmond Hill. A pdf supplement is available opposite. The gpx file has been amended to reflect this.

Don't miss the viewpoint as you circle over Haughmond Hill. There is also a platform from which to see the huge quarry excavations.

Haughmond Abbey is an English Heritage property. From here it is possible to get a bus to Shrewsbury.

You are strongly advised to take an OS map and/or a GPS to walk the route. Please note the digital OS maps will show the new Main Route from January 2019.
