Hi sorry I thought I'd replied to this then realised I hadn't!

Right Staffs, depends where in Staffs, not a lot in the South. I don't know these but a quick check found the following:-

Byway West of Penkridge
UCR/ORPA* South of Cannock Chase Country Park
Couple of deadend byways and UCRs around Chasewater and Burntwood
UCR/ORPA North of Wall
Byway S E of Elford
UCR/ORPA South of Hint between Weeford and Tamworth, this one is a ford so will need care and is probably described on www.wetroads.co.uk (Great site for all on Fords!)
UCR/ORPA just North of Austrey not far from Twycross zoo where there is another one.
2 UCR/ORPAs at Wootton
There's a couple of Byways near Leek and Cogelton as well.

When you get North into Staffordshire Moorlands there are a number including long ones near Waterhouses and Wetton.

As I said I don't know the South Staffs tracks at all so be very wary.

* UCR stands for Unadopted County Road now more commonly referred to as an ORPA Other Road with Public Access. (I know it's a County Council/Goverment thing!)
Wading kit/winterised 110 12/24 Ex 59 Independent Marine Commando Royal Engineers and yes it gets used greenlaning as well as at shows. Though not as often as I'd like.
