1. Milford Common
From Milford Common look for the entrance to the National Trust property Shugborough and take the road to the left of the entrance (Holdiford Road). Walk on the pavement on the left of the road and follow this up and over the railway bridge and down to the river bridge. At this point the pavement disappears so cross the river bridge carefully, it is a narrow bridge, and the traffic can be busy at times. Continue a short distance up the road to the next bridge watching out for the traffic and take the path on the left of the bridge down onto the canal towpath. The bridge is Number 106 “Tixall Bridge”.
