This walk takes us down through the wooded nature reserve on the Staffordshire Way Trail, passing East Wall farm and staying the close to the River Churnet for a little while before making our way to Kingsley Holt.
The route then descends to Whiston Bridge over the disused Leek to Uttoxeter Railway Line before climbing up through Ochre Wood to Whiston Golf Links.
We also take in the well known Rock Cottage and the pretty village of Moneystone before picking up the Staffordshire Moorlands path to Oakamoor then gradually climbing up the fairly steep Stoney Dale to Suttons Wood back to Hawksmoor Nature Reserve.
