Latest Updates

Eventually into real countryside and on the Two Saints Way, while it was muddy after endless rain, the track improved along a long gone rail route. Thorpe Precast occupies the site of Apedale Colliery, here they make building panels that look like bricks. Crossing the road we enter Apedale Country Park and here I came to an abrupt stop. The visitor centre by the car park stands on the site of Apedale Iron Works and has much to offer. Turning into suburban streets past a former hotel now apartments the route offers a light controlled crossing of the ring road....

Best to walk in summer and keep to paths as much as possible as roads can be busy as you get near Newcastle under Lyme....

A functional but rather uninteresting Slow Way that to it's credit does serve Hartshill where there are shops....

Returning from Newcastle I found this route an improvement on the outward journey but steps to or from Richmond Street Park must make access difficult for any user. This route under the railway at Stoke is better. Having walked the road between Newcastle and Hartshill I investigated an alternative, which I found and enjoyed but it was or had been a gated path so I'm reluctant to suggest it....

You divert off into St Andrews Square and up some steps into Richmond Park (a route which can not be wheeled but I shall post a wheelable version). The steps into Richmond Park will be a problem for some but I was able to walk an accessible version on my return which I will post shortly....

As you begin the descent towards Stoke Town Centre you get some incredible views towards Stoke City Centre (Hanley) and Burslem. The route skips Stoke Town Centre to follow the crossings over the A500 and the canal in the direction of Stoke City Centre....
