Know Your County Walks

Staffordshire County Scout Active Support Unit are starting the winter season of “Know your County” walks. The walks usually take place on the last Sunday of each month.

The first walk will take place on Sunday 27th October and should last 4 – 5 hours duration with, hopefully, a pub at about half way.
This season’s walks are based on The Two Saints Way which are from Chester Cathedral to Lichfield Cathedral. There is a good website here giving fuller details of the walk and its background.
Essentially the whole route is Chester, Waverto, Bunbury, Nantwich, Barthomly, Audley, Stoke-on-Trent, Trentham, Stone, Stafford, Milford and Cannock Wood to Lichfield.

We will be starting from Balterley and walking to Westport Lake. It’s about 10 miles over quite pleasant countryside with no major hills.
If anyone is interested in walking or improving map and compass skills they are welcome to join with us.
