50 Walks in Staffordshire

50 Walks in Staffordshire

by: Paul Grogan, Hugh Taylor and Moira McCrossan
One of the popular AA County walks series, this guide explores the best of the Staffordshire countryside. The northeast of the county is arguably the best region for hillwalking as it comprises a significant portion of the Peak District, an area characterised by lofty moors, deep dales and tremendous views. Further south is the old pottery town of Stoke-on-Trent, a surprisingly hilly area which today is typified by peaceful wooded valleys, pond-pearled streams and gently rolling hills. Stafford is home to one of the oldest and most impressive castle earthworks in the country. Cannock Chase, an old hunting forest, is now a huge forested nature park with miles of forest tracks to explore. In the very south of the county is Kinver Edge with its sandstone cliffs.

The book includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions, including detailed full colour sketch maps, for every walk. Information on what to look out for during the walk and places to eat and drink is provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments. The book is illustrated with colour photographs.
