Temporary Diversions on Stages 1, 2 and 5
There may be diversions in Ironbridge from 30th September 2019, possibly lasting as long as August 2020. The effect on the route is relatively small and is on a part where we use the Severn Way. Diversions should be signposted by the contractors.
There are also (late November) Telford and Wrekin diversions at the Wharfage and in Horsehay. Both are minor and signed.
The initial diversion taking the route North of the river from Jackfield
has now been lifted.
Also, you need wellingtons to follow the route South of the Little
Dawley Pools currently (Jan 2020). You can take a route slightly to
your Left (going Clockwise ) to avoid this.
Michael McCarroll, Duane Roberts and Brian Taylor completed the trail on September 15th 2019, running anticlockwise, in 10 hours and 54 minutes. Well done.. As far as we know they is the first to do this. and this is the fastest all in one go time. See the Hall of Fame.
First solo runners complete the trail in the Anticlockwise direction
in a new fastest time
1st Lilleshall and Muxton Scouts
Our chair presented certificates to some of the Ist Lilleshall and Muxton Scouts who did a special 40 mile version of the trail last weekend. 5 people did the whole route with support of others for parts of it. There were 50 beavers, cubs & scouts who took part altogether along with parents (and two dogs). Each did as much as they were able. So, these photos show only a small selection. Well done all.
