Stoke on Trent Canal Walk
This waterside walk takes you along the Trent and Mersey Canal and the Calder Canal to Hanley Park in Stoke on Trent. The walk starts at the train station which is right next to the Trent and Mersey Canal. Follow the canal north through Cliffe Vale to the point where it meets with the Caldon Canal. Here you will find the Etruria Industrial Museum, in a well-preserved example of a nineteenth century British steam-powered potter's mill. Follow the canal east and you will soon come to Hanley Park. The canal runs through the park which includes a lake and series of nice footpaths. You can extend the walk by continuing along the towpath through the countryside towards Cheddleton.
