Middleton Day Hiking Staffordshire Route
We went on this Day Hiking In Middleton England event just after Christmas when the Christmas decorations were still up in the pub. For this day hiking event, the starting point was The Green Man pub in Middleton village, Staffordshire. We met up in the car park and put our gear on. The landscape was flat and the hiking distance was around 4.5 miles, which was suitable for beginners or anyone that was looking for some easy hiking and a chat.
Day Hiking In Middleton England began by hiking along field paths through farmland, travelling in the direction of New Park Woods. Next we journeyed in the direction of Wishaw, passing through a very small village called Stoke End. Our return route to Middleton village also used field paths through farmland, together with some tracks and quiet country lanes. On our return to The Green Man Pub we enjoyed a great meal, had a drink and a chat with other hikers that decided to visit the pub.
Middleton Day Hiking Staffordshire Local Info
Middleton is a countryside village in Staffordshire. During the 1970s Middleton Hall was nearly lost to industrial developers. However, it remains today the most interesting feature of Middleton. At one time, the Hall was the home of Sir Richard Bingham and the village still honours his memory with a statue close to the Parish Church.
The Green Man Pub
The Green Man is the ideal British pub, with its ancient walls providing the ideal haven from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and where you can enjoy the crackle of a real fire.
When Done & With Whom
I did this hike with my partner Anne whilst on a St Ives Cornwall hiking holiday with HF Holidays (HF) in England during January 2010. We drove from our home in Birmingham to the start location of The Green Man pub in Middleton.
