As well as all the dates listed below, our local IWA Branch holds many varied and interesting events, most of which raise funds to help us to restore our canals. They are a great bunch and deserve our support. You might also like to consider joining the IWA, as this too helps fund our restoration.

Wellington Walking Festival Walk at Granville Park, Telford led by Alistair Price
The walk will follow various footpaths and bridleways through Granville Country Park, starting at the car park of Granville Road. We will walk sections of the Donnington Wood Tub Boat canal one of the earliest canals built in this country. We will explore some of the industrial history of the North East of Telford, discuss the legacy of Granville Leverson Gower and time permitting look at the ruins of Mines, a canal basin, early furnaces, pumping house and winding house for Muxton coal mine.
Paths are well used with some gentle gradients but can be a little muddy after rain. We will walk at a gentle pace with frequent stops and chances to explore the ruins.
The walk will start from the car park of Granville Road. To reach this car park from the M 52 leave at Junction 4 and head north along the A4640 to Red Hill. At Red Hill continue over the first island and travel downhill over the second island to Granville Island. (This is the island with Asda Supermarket). Take the third exit, a right turn. About ½ mile along this road, look for the car park on the left where we will meet.
Start time for the walk is 10.00 am. The walk will take between 2 and 2 ½ hours including stops.
