A delightful 10½ mile return journey through Staffordshire's hidden valley.

Cheddleton is the home of the railway with the impressive Grade II listed Victorian Station, small relics museum and locomotive sheds. St. Edwards Church and Cheddleton Flint Mill are both within walking distance along the towpath.

Consall station, set in the picturesque hamlet deep in the Churnet Valley is the railways 'jewel in the crown'. Sharing the valley floor with both the canal and river, this sleepy rural station is full of Victorian charm. No vehicular access is permitted at this station and passengers are asked to respect the local countryside.

Kingsley & Froghall see's an impressive North Staffordshire Railway style station complete with award winning traditional tea rooms. Picnic area & full disabled facilities are available and only a short walk from the historic lime kilns & Froghalll Wharf on the Caldon Canal.
