Today on the show, I asked people to get in touch with the best places to go adventuring in the beautiful, Staffordshire Moorlands.

I’m someone who enjoys getting out for some fresh air on a weekend, and that does make the Moorlands perfect for someone like me.

 

Here’s the top 8 suggestions that everyone got in touch with today:

  1. Roaches – I’m glad this was one of the main suggestions for the Stafforshire Moorlands, it’s one of my favorite places to be, but I’m yet to discover Lud’s Church!

2. Cheddleton Railway Walk – I was quite blown away by the amount of people who told me about this walk. I briefly remember a few people about this route when I first started working at Moorlands Radio. I’m told that it’s a very peaceful and scenic route to take.

3. Rudyard Lake and Village – A timeless place to be – famous for the story of how Rudyard Kipling’s parents supposedly met, and once home to a very active railway as well as lots of weird and wonderful entertainment.

4. Dovedale – Stepping in at number 4 from the suggestions. I’ve many pictures of the infamous stepping stones at Dovedale, which is part of the Peak District – so technically not part of the ‘Staffordshire’ Moorlands; but we’ll make an exception for this one!

5. Manifold Valley – Another place in the Moorlands with stunning, scenic views.

6. Tittesworth Reservoir – I’ve heard this can be seen from certain points on the Roaches which is super cool!

7. Biddulph Grange Country Park – This is one that I’ve actually visited before! A stunning place, and I would recommend this one myself. Myself and my partner took the Himalayan Trail there, and it was a really great afternoon out.

8. Ballington Wood – Situated in Leek and apparently all grown over now – but still making the list! I’ve always been drawn to woodland areas and trees and would love to walk these woods, if ever it opens up again!

 

A big thank you to everyone who got in touch with a suggestion for me today! I’ve got a long to-do list now of adventures.
