The Kidsgrove to Stoke Ridgeway

My new free ebook, of nearly 100 pages: The Kidsgrove to Stoke Ridgeway: an elevated green route, to walk from Kidsgrove Station to Stoke Station (5Mb PDF). It photographs and describes a new ten-mile ridge walk, going all the way down the western edge of the Stoke-on-Trent valley. I’d estimate that about eight miles of the walk are either wooded, pasture, or parkland. Be warned, it has a delicious mix of strenous slopes — and is not for the faint-of-heart! Some parts of the route, such as the Bradwell Wood bit, are very muddy in winter and spring. It’s an unofficial continuation of The Gritstone Trail, a similarly tough “up and down” long-distance path which currently terminates at Kidsgrove.

    Version 1.1 just uploaded, as a new version. Thanks to Fred Hughes for pointing out that some of the history was awry in a few places. Improved compression on the photos; fact-checked all historical notes again, revising and qualifying if needed; corrected a few other typing errors; added a picture of the Wedgwood statue at the end; new subtitle.
