Saltersford Lane Circular Walk

'The "saltways" were used to transport salt across the country and are believed to date back to pre-Conquest times. Saltersford Lane is thought to have linked Nantwich with Newcastle, Cheadle and Derby and has sandstone paving up as far as Holbrook Farm from which point the original paving is mainly replaced with modern concrete.'

'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.
