The Way for the Millennium is a gentle 39 mile long-distance footpath which traverses west to east across Staffordshire, making much use of canal towpaths and old railway lines. It complements the Staffordshire Way, and shares a few miles with it. There is plenty of accommodation and other services along the route, does not present problems of tough terrain, and is marked by name on Ordnance Survey Explorer maps.

Notes on Accommodation

We have split The Way for the Millennium accommodation into Hotels & Inns and Bed & Breakfast. We use the word Inn in its true sense of a pub which provides accommodation, rather than just a romantic name for a pub. Guest House accommodation is included with Bed & Breakfast. While we realise many guest houses are better than some hotels, in order to avoid confusion we have opted for the simpler option.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome accommodation recommendations.
