The Greyhound Inn Location
The pretty village of Warslow is in the heart of the Peak District in Staffordshire, surrounded by the most beautiful countryside, characterised by rolling hills, wooded valleys and towering limestone peaks. The former railway lines of the Manifold Way and the Tissington Trail run very close to The Greyhound Inn and provide stunning traffic-free trails that are perfect for walkers and cyclists.
Warslow is on the edge of an area of gritstone upland known as The Roaches, aptly named from the French les roches, the rocks. This beautiful region covers 975 acres and provides a perfect playground for walkers and climbers, set amidst the most stunning open countryside. At its highest point the ridge reaches 505m (1,657 feet) and provides spectacular views over Staffordshire, Cheshire and even into Lancashire and Wales.
Only slightly further afield you’ll find the elegant spa town of Buxton, with its beautiful Georgian architecture and famed Opera House, or a great family day out at the renowned Pooles Cavern. In the opposite direction the lovely market town of Leek is always a wonderful place to spend a day, with its wealth of independent shops, galleries and restaurants.

The Manifold Trail runs along the valley. It was originally built in the early 1900's as a Narrow Gauge Railway running from an interchange station at Waterhouses to Hulme End. it close down way back in 1935. Apart from tourists, it carried a little freight from the Creamery at Ecton and some ore from the lead mines. Coal was brought in for local community customers. Standard Gauge goods and milk tank wagons were carried on unique transporter vehicles, then shunted on to lengths of standard gauge track at various locations. The Leek and Manifold Railway Company was taken over by the North Staffordshire Railway and then the LMS - London Midland and Scottish Railway, who decided that it lost too much money and closed it down. Arguably, if they just operated it at tourism time, it could have survived, even possibly been extended north of Hulme End. Who knows!
