Red arrow, cream disc, route nameHutchison Way

Telford & Wrekin

29 km / 18 miles
A route linking the two historic towns of Wellington and Newport and the base of celebrated hill the Wrekin via Telford new town, combining modern developments with lanes, trackways, woodlands and open spaces created from old industrial sites.

Created by Telford & Wrekin council as a millennium project and named in honour of late former Chief Executive of the council David Hutchison, the original inspiration of the route.

UPDATE January 2021 - We have recently been advised of several changes to the route and, consequently, the GPX files are not as accurate as they could be. This matter is currently being addressed and arrangements will be made to update the GPX files once clarification has been received.
