Centuries of Coal The Cheadle coalfield covers some eighteen square miles extending west from Cheadle to Dilhorne and north to Ipstones. It is a fragmented part of the larger North Staffordshire Coalfield with rock layers of approximately 280 to 300 million years old. The readily available coal of this area led to the growth of these communities and their associated industries. Small scale mining, where surface outcrops occurred can be traced back through the centuries. Between 1550 and 1750 there was a steady increase in both the area mined and the depth of mining. The peak years however, were in the nineteenth century when nearly all men worked as colliers or miners, some being as young as 10 years old. By the end of this century the industry was dominated by just four very large collieries. Many place names reflect the nature of the industry. For example, Dilhorne was known in the Doomsday Book as Delverne meaning a place of diggings. The "Delph" in Delphouse Road is thought to have a similar meaning. Enjoy the Walk This 6 mile walk takes you west of Cheadle over the coal field to the former mining village of Dilhorne. Allow 3 hours to complete the walk over gently rolling countryside. Good stout footwear is recommended. Remember, these paths cross private land.

From Town End, follow Park Lane past the houses to the footpath on the left. After the first two fields follow the footpath to the left of the natural depression. Cross the stile at the slope bottom, you are now on the JCB test track.

After this stile turn left and keep the hedge to your left through two fields. Head directly towards Parkhall Farm and skirt the left side of the buildings to the road. 3. Cross to the opposite footpath and head towards the houses at the top of the field, the stile is in the top corner. Cross to the track opposite and follow it, keeping the field boundary on your right. On reaching the field gate and stile, cross the stile and continue until you reach a small pond.
