Walter Moberly Building (CIEL, Centre for International Exchange and Languages)
Keele University Students' Union (KUSU). This is where we send our mail/post and pick up parcels/packages. Also there are a few bars and two dance floors for our nights out.
09:26 Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent
So today I would like to go to the Peak District. First, though, I must slowly make my way from town to town by bus...
BBC Radio Stoke
Hanley Town Hall
This was a nice small town that reminded me of the mountain towns back home.
12:54 To Hartington
13:41 Derbyshire Moors
13:57 Walking to Warslow
(14:06) One mile out of Hartington in about 25 minutes. So, then, it should take about another hour to Warslow...
14:26 Hulme End
After Passing through Hulme End, the midpoint of my journey, I was faced with a choice...
I could either continue along the road to Warslow, or I could see where this "Manifold Track" would lead. I finally determined that I would follow it down to the next road it cross which would take me up to Warslow so I could catch my bus home.
Okay, so I decided to try to satisfy my curiousity down this trail.
Ecton Hall, under renovation. is this nice little
village hamlet with this hall and three houses along a little wooded road running up this hill to a dead end.
View from Ecton Hall over the Manifold Valley.
Climbing Ecton Hill
View from the top of Ecton Hill, a little more than 1000 feet elevation (my estimate).
