In our busy city where the road network is confusing and chaotic,behind all this weaves the Cauldon canal with paths that really surprised me.A simple stroll can get you around the hub of the city seeing landmarks from a totally different perspective.

narrow boats go up and down this canal. I know of this canal that enters Hanley Park and have walked along it as it winds towards Hanley. It is nice to see a canal that is enjoyed and used. Great place to walk to unwind.

A lovely afternoon stroll through an urban landscape. The pathways are well maintained and it is beautiful walking through Hanley park.

We love to walk along canals, this canal is generally clean with decent footpaths, as you walk you get the chance to see bottle kilns and get a taste of the potteries and how important the canals were in the past

Once out of Stoke the countryside is beautiful. The canal had relatively few narrow boats cruising along it which is just a well as the canal is generally narrow with lots of blind bends that need to be taken slowly. It also has three of...More

The Caldon canal or Cauldon Canal is one of the most beautiful parts of the staffordshire moorlands an it is well worth hiring a narrowboat to slowly take it all in especially where the canal meets the river Churnet - absolutely awesome.

Really good place for a walk as there's loads to see along the way - it's not overly crowded either with interesting stops and interesting when it meets the Trent/Mersey canal.
