New path to Wollerton Wetlands opens

Wetlands Bridge

Hodnet Parish Council is very pleased to announce that a new public footpath has opened from Wollerton down to the bypass Wetlands.

Working with Shropshire Council, this long running project involved a detailed investigation of claimed past rights of way and, after a protracted period of consultation and a formal legal process, has resulted in the opening of a new access path via ‘Cow Lane’. See Map.
From the Wetlands an existing public footpath (FP 28) runs to Stoke Heath, via Helshaw Grange, providing access to a variety of wider country walks.

If you wish to gain access to the Wetlands, and the paths beyond, only use this new route – please do not create nuisance/trespass by trying to use other routes, even if you may have used them in the past. This new path is the only legal means of access.
