The 'Way of the Millennium' long-distance footpath was established by Staffordshire County Council to mark the Millennium. The route spans the
width of Staffordshire, running from Newport in the west to Burton upon Trent in the east. The route covers public rights of way, the Stafford to Newport Greenway and permissive canal towpaths. The Millennium Way complements the Staffordshire Way which runs north to south across the County. Unlike the Staffordshire Way, which is solely for walkers, parts of the Millennium Way are available to
horse riders and cyclists.
