Rudyard Lake Walk

Enjoy a scenic walk around Rudyard Lake, with the steam railway being a must-see while visiting this beautiful area of Staffordshire.

An easy-to-follow route that’s also moderate in difficulty.


Resting amidst the scenic Staffordshire Moorlands is Rudyard Lake. This route is made up of mostly flat terrain, meaning it’s ideally suited to wheelchair users and prams.

Be sure to keep your eye out for the Rudyard Lake Steam Railway too, letting you explore your surroundings in a different way.

The lake also offers a range of watersports, including fishing, sailing, and canoeing, perfect for those seeking to try something new.
