Walking through Wellington

There is a chance to walk the whole of the Telford T50 50 Mile Trail in 4.5 days, using public transport from Wellington to access the trail where needed. Another new event is a walk, starting in Madeley, in celebration of Thomas Parker, the inventor of the world's first electric car.
