Albrighton rail rambles relaunched for 2022

4 May, 2022

The Albrighton Rail Ramblers group are extending an invite for people to join them on their monthly walks through the Shropshire countryside.

The ‘Rail, Trail, Ale’ initiative is returning for 2022, again supported by West Midlands Trains, having launched last year with the Albrighton Walking for Health group.

The four to five-mile walks start at Albrighton Station, which is served by the Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury line. The first ramble will be on Wednesday, May 18th, with further walks planned for June 22nd, July 20th, August 17th, and September 21st.

Guests are welcome to join the walks, or the group is happy to provide advice on routes for those who want to ramble independently. Suggested circular walks include quiet country lanes and scenic footpaths, and routes to visit some of the area’s most notable attractions, such as the RAF Museum at Cosford, and the Albrighton Moat Project, said to be the only dedicated fishing centre for people with disabilities in Europe.

The ramblers also enjoy visiting friendly pubs, including four within 15 minutes’ walk from Albrighton Station.  

Tony Wrighton, co-ordinator of the Albrighton Walking for Health group, said: “A walk in the countryside is a great way to relax and refresh yourself. It’s good for both the body and the mind.”
