Help connect Biddulph

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Biddulph’s Slow Ways.

It's not far from the meeting place in Biddulph to the old railway track, leading to Stoke, popular with dogwalkers and cyclists as well as fellow walkers. The route across the fields is pleasant and it eventually leads to Birchenwood Country Park where you join another old railway line....

A short walk from the bus station start point in Biddulph took us to a former railway line cycle track route to Brindley Ford, which was very pleasant and had benches and a picnic table along it. By the time we arrived at the next railway line cycle track we needed torches. Unfortunately, in the dark, we took the wrong footpath for KidBid Two at Valentine Road (and thus unintendedly created KidBid Three), so we revisited this end on a subsequent day....

1 Route should be easy to follow: Some of the plotting was vague to put it mildly and as a consequence we found ourselves deciding which footpath to take rather than letting the plotting guide us. 2 A Slow Way is not a tour: Faced with a 13km walk, it's a bit grieving to be able to see a 300m section of pavement which will take you to the same place that the plotted route will take you to in 1500m....

The route out of Leek is along an old railway which makes for a dry, raised, enjoyable and relaxing walk to the cafe of the railway at Rudyard Lake. The route leaves at the station for a short walk along the pavement of Rudyard Road....

This route from Stoke Railway Station is walked mainly on streets through the city to Ford Green Hall, where the rest of the journey is on the cycle route to Biddulph. This is no problem for walkers though. It would be possible for a wheelchair user to travel the whole journey and the route from Ford Green Hall to Biddulph Bus Station is far more scenic than the first section (see photograph)....
