Points of Interest/Notes on this walk:

For much of the year the River Manifold appears dry. In fact it runs underground from Wettonmill to Ilam taking 22 hours to cover the 4 miles.

National Trails & Long Paths included on this walk:

Part of this walk follows a section of The Manifold Way, a 13km (8 miles) linear footpath connecting Hulme End in Staffordshire, England with Waterhouses in Staffordshire, England. Originally a 2ft 6in (0.762m) gauge light railway for tourists the line was opened in 1904. Never a great success it was finally closed in 1934 and became a bridleway three years later. The Manifold Way is waymarked by named posts. For more walks that include a section of this trail see The Manifold Way.
