Starting from the Oakamoor picnic site, the walk follows the track of the old North Staffordshire Railway’s line, now converted into a walkway adjacent to the River Churnet.     

After the walkway is left you come upon the Ramblers Retreat Restaurant at the entrance to Dimmings Dale, where anything from a cup of tea to a full three-course meal can be purchased. Proceed up the dale, passing ponds full of wildlife amongst the mixed woodland.      

After crossing the dale by a weir, a roadway is soon reached adjacent to a small group of houses. The route back to the start is then via quiet country lanes.

5/26/2010 - Mangal Mistry

I did this walk on 27/04/10. It may be useful, - the car park is at post code ST10 3AG. It is a very easy walk, through some very beautiful countryside, especially between points 5 and 6. Talking of point 6, there is no ‘Information Notice Board’ anymore, but ‘red marker’ and picnic tables are there. You can also see from here, - what looks like a fairytale building on the hill above. A really enjoyable walk. You can see my pictures of the walk at : http://tinyurl.com/2wl8uxb
