Known problems and diversions- Updated regularly
To take effect 21st April for 2-3 days but still current on 25th April. Stage 1 Jackfield- 2-3 days
To repair recent flood damage, the short stretch of footpath immediately to the west of the Half Moon Inn will be closed. The alternative is simple and just means keeping to the upper footpath for a couple of hundred yards.
Added 12th April 2021 Stage 6 Oakengates - up to 12 weeks
A section of Route-6 within Oakengates - the footbridge that crosses the rail tracks between Station Fields and Hancocks Drive - will be closed for approximately 12-weeks from Monday 12th April.
The easiest & closest alternative route is to use the nearby footbridge that can be accessed through the railway station. The station is open so you would need to be mindful of the trains and passengers whilst accessing the platforms. When you come out of the station head for the road, turn right at the roundabout into Station Road then turn left to rejoin the T50 at the foot of Canongate. Follow the green route, not the existing red route, below.
Take care crossing Station Road.
Added 12th April 2021 Stage 1 Little Dawley - Ongoing
This is a photo from last year, but currently (April 2021) the trail is underwater again in Little Dawley. The easiest diversion is to follow the Ironbridge Way between the edge of Wide Waters and the crossing of the old railway line . Now there are other tracks on the ground and we originally avoided the IBW as the alternative is normally more scenic.
