I walked this route from Stone to Baldwin's Gate. Long story short: the route is probably a three star route (perfectly adequte, if not mind-blowingly amazing), but a short stretch of completely impassable footpath means I can't necessarily recommend this route. If it weren't for that short section, I'd give this route three stars....
After a very short stretch of road walking, there's a long bit along a former railway line....

The descent into the Trent Valley is across a number of quiet fields and is easy to follow. As you get nearer the River Trent, the fields become wetter and as I got closer to Burston I encountered a herd of cows who seemed incredibly keen to get close to me. Having crossed the Trent via a footbridge at Burston, you join the Trent and Mersey Canal which you follow all the way to Stone....
Leaving Stone from outside the station, it crosses the railway via a bridge and goes straight through to the canal. You pass the Wedgwood Museum and then having crossed the border into Stoke City the canal becomes more wooded as it passes through the pretty surroundings of Trentham....

I "started" this route from Stone, well "started" isn't really the word....
Route through mostly lovely rural farmland, the start town of Stone has many facilities, pubs, cafes, places to stay, supermarkets etc on the route instelf there are almost no facilites, the first publically availabnle water is at around 18km. There are a number of tricky access issues where stiles have "disappeared" or vegentation needs to be beaten back....
Nice and pleasant walk along the canal from the pottery town of Stoke to Stone. A bit boring during the first mile after Stoke but it gets better. After Trentham, it can get a little muddy in winter....
