Get Telford Walking Day Two 3

Today I joined the Ramblers ‘Walking for Wellbeing’ walk that started at Horsehay golf course. The walk was mostly along places I had never been before, although it incorporated two places with memories for me.

The first one being the road leading to where my hubbie’s house was before we got married. The second took me further back in time to when I first moved to Telford (although it wasn’t called that then). My dad took a job that saw him working on the Dawley New Town project which later became Telford Development Corporation.

The occupant of the house my parents were purchasing was rather tardy in moving out which led us to live in temporary accommodation in Pool Hill Road, Dawley. On our walk I had a flash back memory when we crossed the now defunct railway line that backed onto our Dawley house and the day a train came screeching along the line scaring me to death.  In this house I also remember being extremely ill with the measles which led to my shortsightedness.

In case you are wondering, these are happy memories.

Our walk soon led us away from my nostalgic memories and onto pathways new to me, eventually walking along the edge of the golf course and joining the T50 trail and the Shropshire Way before returning to the club house for refreshments.
