Nottinghamshire Rural Routes
These are produced in conjunction with Country Walking magazine. Keen walkers can now take advantage of a range of self guided rural routes in the glorious countryside. They include Sherwood Forest, the Vale of Belvoir, and Teversal and Huthwaite - the highest point in Nottinghamshire - which commands spectacular views.

A waterside walk is the perfect way to pass an afternoon, and the villages along Nottinghamshire's rivers and canals provide a pleasant stop. For example, West Stockwith, Nottinghamshire's most northerly outpost, was a busy little inland port in the canal era. These days the modern marina is a centre for leisure – and the Chesterfield Canal is popular with walkers.
In the rural countryside to the east of Nottinghamshire near Southwell, Fiskerton, on the River Trent, has a quiet charm, with old mill buildings and a pleasant inn. Further up river, Gunthorpe is a popular place – especially on a warm summer's evening – with both a pub and a chic brassiere overlooking the waterfront. And from the market town of Grantham to the River Trent, the Grantham Canal runs for 33 miles through the beautiful Vale of Belvoir. Much of the line is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
