Friends of Albrighton Station
The Friends of Albrighton Station created a community venture called ‘Rail and Ramble’. The programme of walks and rail journeys along the Shrewsbury – Wolverhampton line encouraged local communities to join together and partake rural walks within striking distance of the stations.
Culminating with tea and biscuits, the programme set a template for others to follow as people seek open-air activities for exercise and socialising.
The Parish Council minibus offers people connections to the train service and dates of walks have all been promoted on a dedicated website created by the project founders. albrightonrailramblers.co.uk
