Stone Ramblers have produced two booklets of walks covering the Stone area. These are a high quality full colour publication, with the primary objective of promoting walking in the area for healthy recreation. Our aim is:-

  • To encourage healthy walking and exploration of the countryside around Stone.

  • To provide a wide range of walks to enable people with varying abilities and interests to enjoy walking at their own level.

  • To encourage progression to longer walks as confidence increases, perhaps making them personal or family challenges.

  • To encourage further exploration of the footpath network around Stone.

The contributors are all experienced members of the Ramblers Association. The Association seeks to help everyone to enjoy walking in the Countryside, to foster care and understanding of the countryside, to protect rights of way, to secure public access on foot to open country and to defend the natural beauty of the countryside.

The idea is to encourage a gradual build up of fitness and stamina, if you are unfit to begin with.



This book contains 20+ walks ranging from 1.4 to 36 miles (the Challenge walk). The walks are all divided up by waypoints which allow readers to join and leave walks at easily identifiable points.

Each walk starts from a village on a bus route and with a car parking place. Clear descriptions help the walker to enjoy the routes without the need for map reading skills. All the footpaths and bridleways used are public Rights of Way, mostly clearly waymarked.

All the walks are easy for any averagely fit person if taken at a leisurely pace, but we would class the longer walks as moderate requiring a little more fitness and the Challenge Walk as strenuous if it is done in 1 or 2 days.

Lists are given of bus routes, refreshment stops and outdoor shops which may be useful and general advice given to walkers.

Walks Around Stone comprises 12 selected walks from 1 to 7 miles which illustrate the attractiveness and interest of the locality. Each walk starts from a local parking place and has a clear, tested description and detailed map to help even the novice walker enjoy the routes without the need for map reading skills.

All the walks in the book are intended for persons of average fitness without specialist walking equipment. Some of the walks are suitable for persons regaining fitness after illness.

These walks were previously published as a series of leaflets, but are now updated and collected together into one booklet to the same high standard as Stone Circles.
