Considering that Stoke and Derby are fairly close on either side, this area is actually a quiet corridor of lush green fields, hedgerows and woods. Carpets of bluebells are appearing in the woods and there are cowslips in the fields.
The aim for today was originally to get to Abbot's Bromley, about five miles on from Uttoxeter, but weary feet make me a call it a day and I hop on a bus to Stafford to meet my friend Wren and head for a rest day at her house in Shrewsbury.
Going into the churchyard at Ilam Hall to look for Coxons (maternal grandmother's family) and finding Friths.
The JCB World Headquarters - of all the things I thought I might see here, huge fleets of JCBs wasn't on the list!
