Wappenshall in Telford

Wappenshall in Telford



When I started this blog, my goal was to share places of Telford that I find interesting and quirky. A place for a walk, an explore or just a plain old nosy. As the site has grown it has evolved somewhat. Readers are sending ME places of curiosity. Places that have been off my radar despite my 40+ years of traipsing around our town, which is extremely satisfying 🤗

Today we ventured to a fascinating place. Not yet opened up enough for a full walk but one day there is a dream that you will travel all the way to Shrewsbury from here on your Shanksy's Ponies

We had an invitation to visit but this merry band of volunteers are very keen to add to their numbers. You can join for £10 a year, you can turn up to a working party and lend a hand or you could invite yourself for a mini tour with a kindly worker like we did (thanks to the lovely Phil) 🤣
Places like these astound me. The sheer passion of people who give their time freely and willingly to turn around places that have been forgotten and abandoned.

Wappenshall is most definitely in Telford. Just up the road from Apley in fact. In its past life the canal thrived, an important hub for 30+ boats a day loading and unloading their precious cargo. Sadly they were gradually filled in and left to become overgrown wastelands. But not any more! Thanks to tireless efforts and successful grants these places are being brought back to life. It is envisaged in as little as 4 years the boats will be returned along with a visitor centre and possibly a tea room. Dream big, achieve big!

With our help we can ease the way by voting for them for some further funding so if you can, get clicking on the link!

I urge you to visit this place so that you can see the transformation in the years to come. It is locked up so make sure you check when its open. The bridge alone is a work of art. It was built around a bend so was called a skew bridge. I reckon that's where skewiff and askew came from but that's just my musings.....

New footbridge Telford Central Station to Town Centre

New footbridge Telford Central Station to Town Centre



The new glass-sided bridge will be cheaper to maintain with a path to the town centre that won’t be as steep as the current one.

Wheelchair users, cyclists or people with pushchairs and heavy luggage will also have access the new bridge via new lifts.

Cllr. Angela McClements, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for transport, said: “The current bridge is reaching the end of its lifespan.

“Anyone who has hauled a suitcase up the steps, pushed a stroller with a child in or cycled up the steep ramps will agree with this. The old bridge fails to meet many standards people now expect.

“We need a more welcoming gateway to the town and replacing the bridge is good news for our residents and visitors.” ... See MoreSee Less

The Newport Canal

The Newport Canal



Hmmmm well, today ran away with me so instead of my big walk, I revisited a lovely place I know.

Over near Cosy Hall in Newport you can park for free and just hop on over the road to the mouth of the canal. The swans bobbed along quite happily allowing pictures and even falling asleep right next to my feet!
It was freezing cold with a fierce wind but the blue sky coupled with white and grey puffy clouds enticed a walk out of my feet.

This is a lovely walk which I have never reached the end of. Apparently it goes all the way to Stafford! You can cycle if you go to the right as the path is not too bad, its OK for pushchairs too. Benches dot the sides so its easy enough for an amble. Near the start there is a playpark for kids, near the leisure centre there is an outdoor gym and a massive field brilliant for dogs all within a moment's walk.

There are picnic tables near the start too which is lovely in the Summer but not so much today 🤣

I love Newport and always feel like it has a holiday vibe about it. Check out the shops whilst there too, something a little different than the norm ❤🌳🍁
