'Eccleshall has a very extensive Parish, the second largest in the County, comprising some 20,000 acres. There are 134 public rights of way in the Parish listed by the County Council and set down in the DEFINITIVE MAP. Considerable work has been undertaken by the Parish with the agreement of Landowners, farmers and Staffordshire County Council to improve the network of Rights of Way. Stiles have been installed, finger pointer posts, waymarking and bridges built ...'

Doorstep Walks make use of the Public Rights of Way network. But beware, a few sections of the walk can become muddy and wet at certain times of the year. Boots and wellies are recommended! Each Doorstep Walk has a specially designed leaflet to guide you. The leaflets were designed by local school children and volunteers who helped identify the route and points of interest.' Unfortunately, the Link to 'Doorstep Walks' no longer seem to be working - though at the time of Review (19 March 2016) Google cited links to individual Walks. I have written to the Council.
