Seaton Stagger Route


  1. Starting from Timbersbrook car park turn right down Weathercock Lane and then left at the footpath signpost. Continue over the fields to Brookhouse Lane , turn right and the left  into the the farmyard .
  2. Proceed through 2 farm gates and follow the hedge line. At the first gap run diagonally across the field  to the bottom right corner ( this is a “permissive path” ) ,over 2 styles and then turn right to Brookhouse lane and left to the canal going under the bridge. Take the canal  to the metal bridge picking up the normal club route to The Cloud. Within 70 or so yards turn left off the regular route. This path takes you to the tree planted in memory of Seaton. I propose  we all re-group by the tree.
  3. This path loops back round to the normal Cloud route. Run to the Cloud trig point whichever route you choose. Descend along the leftmost path down to Red Lane. Take the first style on the right along Staffordshire Way. Some of this path is not too clear. When you have a choice of running towards a metal gate/fence  or veering left through wood take the woods. Within 50 yards the path becomes very clear again and  traverses down the side of the hill .  2 finger posts indicate the route. Eventually you will see a wooden style to the left at the bottom of the hill. A fingerpost is close to where the style is visible
  4. Turn left over the style and about 100 yards before reaching Tunstall Road turn left over a style. This path leads you diagonally across a large field to a style at the top left hand corner. Go over 2 styles back to Red Lane. Turn right and pick up the path on the left which leads back to the Cloud trig point (the vertical ascent route). From the  the trig point make your way back to Timbersbrook car park and then to the BTT for food and drink.
