Walk 1: Dawley

The Dawley section of the heritage trail offers a great walk through changing scenery. From the top of Dawley High Street, you see the unspoilt sweep of a Victorian architectural townscape. It will take you through to the restful and pretty setting for Stirchley Pools and Telford Town Park back through to Dawley’s lovely old church. This trail section can be completed in just over an hour of steady walking.

We are suggesting a short cut route back to the trail start for those who do not have the time to complete the trail in one go and we’ve identified a few heritage sites along the way some which are still there and some sadly removed with time. This route takes approximately 30 minutes steady walking.
