Help connect Uttoxeter

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 Uttoxeter’s Slow Ways.

The route between Pinfold Street and Trinity Road in Uttoxeter does not exist on the ground and goes through a fenced off area. The GPX plotting is rather wayward throughout. I have submitted HixUtt three to fix these issues....

Walk this route

From Hixon, we start up the ominous sounding Puddle Hill, which becomes a farm lane once out of the fields, then we cross fields on a little used and (apart from waymarked stiles) unmarked path, with the first of many awkward stiles and a few wet sections. We cross the busy B5013 and go straight on along another little used path with more wet and muddy sections. A short section of quiet lane brings us onto the Staffordshire Way, which is better trodden and has some good new stiles, but also has a section that has been constrained between fences and is quite wet and muddy....

A walk of two part which offers a good link from Hilton to Hatton and Tutbury. The path across from Hilton to Marston on Dove is well walked although the section to the shared parish church less used but has good stiles. The dead end road west to Hatton offers easy walking and while the diversion around the Nescafe factory is well surfaced it does spoil an otherwise direct path. Not much can be seen of the castle but the exit path offers a good view of the river valley. The short section of road has a wide mown verge to the path along the access road to the Fauld Industrial Estate which has reminders of military use. The very short section of busy road offers a pavement. Apart from a nettle infested short section near the level rail foot crossing the route is good....

It's a short walk to Hanbury from there and beyond the village the path crosses open fields to Draycott in the Clay, where the route passes a farm shop and a pub. After a few more sheep filled fields, the route joins the pavement of the main road to Marchington. This section was not comfortable, and it definitely costs the route a star but the traffic was light enough and sensible enough to not deem this 300m section too dangerous to walk. However, the quality of the infrastructure is poor and the road walk between Marchington and Hound Hill could not be described as enjoyable or relaxing....

David Sanderson added Uttbur two, a new walk from Uttoxeter to Burton upon Trent

Walk this route

A walked path was evident across the rough field which assists navigation, then a gentle climb. Later the path crosses the games field of Abbotsholme school where a tap by the path might quench your thirst on a hot day. The cross field path was invisible but I pressed on keeping a close eye on the plotted route which got me through. Another report asking for steps to make the path safe to use, the road here is called The Hollow. Fortunately the path is signed from Virginsally, that name should tell a good story. Perhaps best to make use of that seat because while the path through the park is a delight, it is also a climb, take a breather and turn around. Back by the river it's easy walking but cattle are present and the locals walk by the river while the path crosses the meadow....
