About Staffordshire

The Staffordshire Moorlands, in the north of the county, has to be the best area for walking. Situated on the southern fringes of the Peak District it's an ideal base for everything from gentle strolls to energetic hill walking.

Long distance walkers can enjoy the scenic pleasures of the Staffordshire Way, Gritstone Trail and Limestone Way.
