There are old railways, the routes of old plateways and a former canal crowded into the land between the top of Coalbrookdale and Little Dawley. The canal was effectively replaced by the railway, the last traffic on which ended when the power station closed. Its track is still in place, unlike the plateways, last used in this area in the 1930s. Their former trackbeds provide walkers with interesting and quiet byways through this surprisingly rural part of south Telford.
