Starting from Clifton the route the winds its way through fields via an ancient tumulus. Then through the pretty Snelston Park. A lane walk passes the Snelston church before entering the delightful village precincts. Then the lane takes us onto the River Dove for a relaxing walk long its banks to Church Mayfield. Then back on to Clifton. There's no dramatic scenery along this walk, but if a relaxing ramble through typical ancient English scenery (with views) is your thing, then you will appreciate this 'away from it all' part of Staffordshire, then give it a try...... There's a good pub in Clifton to get a meal or drink at too!

I did this beautiful walk on a beautiful day this week and really enjoyed it. You can see my photos of the walk at For most part, it was easy to follow the instructions, but I think lots of changes have happened (new stiles, merging of fields, mature crop with no path etc..) which may require rewriting some instructions. Talking of stiles... if nothing else, just do this walk to see / experience this amazing stile mentioned at point 7. I admire whoever built it. I too have never seen anything like this before ... I recommend this walk wholeheartedly..

Very pleasant walk and on the whole well signposted however at point 6 165438 to be exact Not only has the Hedgerow disappeared but so has the stile and any indication which direction to take. 20/7/08

A very pleasant walk completed on what has been the hottest day of the year so far (26C). Starts with a reasonably steep upward hill, which may be problematical for anyone with heart or lung problems (I have angina). If attempted on a wet day or after a period of wetness, some parts of the walk could be very boggy indeed. It involves walking through a busy dairy farm. However, on a fine day in June the countryside was beautiful, the walk was, on the whole, well signposted and took us a little longer than the estimated time.
