Haughton - Gnosall 11.4.2010

During 2010 we did several short(ish) walks to cover the former LNWR (and before that Shropshire Union Railway and Canal Co) line between Newport and Stafford. Part of the line has been lost to the A41 Newport bypass and to housing around the former Newport station site, but from the county boundary just east of the Newport bypass to the Network Rail boundary just outside Stafford the route has been incorporated into a long distance path called the Millennium Way which extends to Burton-on-Trent in the east of the county. Our first walk covered the section between Haughton and Gnosall.
