About this walk

Apedale Park offers 184 hectares of open space to explore. The park offers a varied landscape of woodland, meadows and pools crossed by many paths and tracks. Overlooking the park is a memorial in the form of a pit wheel dedicated to the mine workers of Staffordshire. This is the newest country park in Staffordshire in what was once a hive of industrial activity. As recently as the 1990s areas of the park were part of an open cast mine. However the area has been landscaped and restored and now provides a habitat for a wide variety of wildlife.

We go to Apedale at least once a week as it is so easy to get to and parking is free. It's peaceful and not too packed. Our dog loves it here to as he gets a mix of grass, woodland and nice paths to run along. It's beautiful on a sunny day, can be quite windy at the top by the pit wheel memorial but the views are excellent.

    It's ok for views as such but I felt that my cocker spaniel was restricted. She loves to run under the scurry and through bushes but allot of this is fenced off. There is a woodland area which is beautiful and open tho. The signs weren't easy to follow tho do remember which way you went in lol

    The address listed under the How to Get There section on this walk is inaccurate. It is not on Leycett Road, but we quickly righted ourselves. Excellent walk as it was dry underfoot, and even the snowier bits were easily navigated. Our dog Dave loved it — happily off lead from car park. Plenty of good free parking. Easy to stay socially distant. Nice views.
