About The Event

It's 5 years since the trail was launched . To celebrate the anniversary we have used some of the surplus generated by sales of the guide book to co-fund the provision and installation of 2 new kissing gates on the trail. One of these gates will be formally opened by Kate Ashbrook,  during the optional Oakengates to Wellington walk ,We are also having a celebration  in Leegomery Community Centre which is next to the trail  The  full celebration is in several parts:

Optional all day walk with the Rail Ramblers , for details, adapted from the Rail Ramblers programme,  see below.

The celebration is at the  Leegomery Community Centre from  4 pm onwards.

There will be another optional short walk at about 4.15 pm , this will use the Trail to go to Apley Woods, take a short tour around, then return by the same route.

5.00 pm short speeches -including from the Mayor and from  Kate Ashbrook. Kate is currently  a vice-president of Ramblers GB and patron of the Walkers are Welcome Towns Network, among other things. She was also  one of the trio that opened the trail, back in 2018.  See photo.
