Welcome to the Trent Vale Trail

A family friendly route for walkers, cyclists, wheelchairs and push chairs
through the amazing wetland area around Collingham.  


Connecting Newark with Collingham, Besthorpe, Girton, Spalford,
South & North Clifton and Fledborough Viaduct.


The first section from Newark to Collingham has been open for several years and forms part of National Cycle Route 64.

The section from Collingham to Besthorpe opened in Spring 2020 and is proving very popular.

Plans are being made to then continue the Trail onto Girton Sailing Club and ultimately through the Cliftons onto Fledborough Viaduct to meet up with the Dukeries Trail (NCN647)

Providing a healthy space for walkers, cyclists, and less-able bodied to actively appreciate the countryside and access a wide variety of natural habitats, local sports and amenities.

The Trent Vale Trail will link to other routes connecting it to Newark, Doddington, Lincoln and, via the Fledborough Viaduct, to Clumber Park.

The Friends of Trent Vale Trail were deeply saddened by the news of the death of Councillor Maureen Dobson. Chairman Alan Hudson said that "Without her encouragement, determination and guiding us in the right direction I doubt the TVT would ever have come to fruition." 

Plans are in hand to make sure there is a fitting tribute to Maureen on the Trail - more news to follow.
