This is a walk along a peaceful canal, converted railway track and through country parks that were once part of this area's industrial heartland. Very little of its history can be seen now as all the sites have been transformed into public recreational areas. Start by following the route of the old North Staffordshire Loop Line through two country parks that were once a hive of industrial activity and end on a section of the Trent & Mersey Canal, once one of the busiest in the country. This is an almost flat walk that can be enjoyed by all.

Up the embankments etc. .But after that section .Bliss .Lovely flat dry walking . Enjoyed it very much . William.

What a fantastic walk, did this walk today having been looking for a walk that might be less mud than usual. Worked out perfect. Only negative (not your fault!) was the litter especially going through Tunstall. Shame the human race cannot look after what we have got. Thanks again Eric Davies (Fellow contributor)
