Sunday, 19th November 2017   CIRCULAR WALK AROUND MILFORD, BROCTON AND SHUGBOROUGH HALL    8 miles  5 hrs   Grade 2
Start Time: 10:00am    Grid Ref: SJ973211. The Starting Point is the public car park at Milford Common, Stafford on the main A513 Stafford to Rugeley Road (nearest postcode is the Barley Mow Pub - ST17 OUW) UPDATE - We may need to pay £2 to park on the day
The route will firstly take us into Cannock Chase at Milford heading towards Brocton before heading up Satnall Hills (only a short climb) onto Shugborough Hall Estate and Park Land (Cafe stop available if open) before crossing the River Trent to reach the Trent & Mersey Canal to Great Haywood. We will then pick up the Stafforshire & Worcestershire Canal back to Tixall and Milford. I've put as a Grade two as there are a few hills and varied terrain under foot at times, although majority of the walk is flat - can be muddy in places by canal. Lunch required.

Points to Remember:
1. Please call the walk leader before the walk in case any details have changed.
2. Make sure that you are suitably dressed for the weather. Remember that some walks are on exposed high land and the weather can be cold and wet. Denim jeans are not suitable for high-level walks.
3. Dogs are welcome but only with the prior agreement of the walk leader
4. If the walk leader decides to shorten the walk then that decision is final and is not open to negotiation. The leader will only do this when there is a good reason for doing so.
5. Even if a walk does not state packed lunch, it is always advisable to bring something to eat and drink.
6. If transport is shared, please provide the driver with a share of the fuel costs.
7. Non RA members are welcome to join us for 3 walks before being asked to join the RA. There are no exceptions to this.
