Overview

'Formed in 1971, the Abbots Bromley Footpath Society exists to promote the use of Rights of Way in Abbots Bromley and the surrounding parishes. Since then the Society has been responsible for the re-opening of many paths in the area by clearing undergrowth and erecting stiles and bridges.'

Distance (miles)12
Overview

'A walk through history would be the best way to describe this lengthy ramble through rural Staffordshire. The walk takes you to the historic village of Abbots Bromley, where many traditional activities still thrive, before circling the famous woodlands of Bagot Forest, now owned by the Forestry Commission.'

Size (acreage)770
Overview

'The Blithfield Estate is owned by South Staffs Water, which provides some 330 million litres of water each day to around 550,000 homes and businesses in parts of the Black Country, East and South Staffordshire and South Derbyshire ... Until 2009, the Estate had remained largely closed to the public. However, assistance and help from Natural England, along with advice from the West Midland Bird Club and the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, led to the company deciding to create footpaths and install bird hides and feeding stations in order to open up much of the Estate, so that everyone can enjoy this tranquil corner of England ...'

Distance (miles)22
Overview

'Passes through the Trent Valley and Needwood landscape zones, and includes old and new woodland, historic sites and new leisure developments. The importance of the Trent Valley as a transport and industrial corridor, with canal, railway, road and river can be seen, and is in sharp contrast to the pastoral landscape of Needwood with ancient woodlands and parklands, game coverts and rural villages.' ALERT At Review, I could no longer locate details of this Walk on the National Forest Website. You could try the Walking Englishman Site instead.

'Rocester village is just off the B5030, approximately 5 miles north-east of Uttoxeter and 7 miles south-west of Ashbourne and the Peak district.

'This circular walk between the villages of Alton and Denstone is as rich in history as it is in natural beauty. The walk follows the River Churnet and the routes of an old canal and railway to Denstone, before returning to Alton across the hilltops along the ancient Saltersford Lane.'  ALERT Link changed from that originally used here.
