What is the Trent Vale Trail? 

  • A exciting project to create a 15 mile walking and cycling trail that links Newark-on-Trent with Sustran's Dukeries Trail at Fledborough Viaduct  - see route map.

  • A family friendly route through the amazing wetland areas of the Trent Vale for walkers, cyclists and,  wherever possible, wheelchair users and pushchairs.

  • A new link avoiding the A1133  to connect Newark with Collingham, Besthorpe, Girton, Spalford, South & North Clifton and Fledborough.

Where is the Trent Vale Trail?

  • The first section links Northgate station in Newark with Collingham via Winthorpe, and accesses the RSPB wetland reserve at Langford Lowfields.

  • The next section (opened Spring 2020) goes from Collingham along Northcroft Lane onto a new track built through Besthorpe Reserve then onto Besthorpe village via Trent Lane.

  • Later sections will take the trail to Girton then over Clifton Hill to South Clifton, linking to the Dukeries Trail via Fledborough Viaduct, before ending in North Clifton. This is dependent on securing agreements and funding. 

 

Who is the Trent Vale Trail for?

  • For leisure walkers and cyclists of all ages and abilities and,  wherever possible, wheelchair users and pushchairs. 

  • The section from Collingham to Besthorpe has been specifically designed to cater for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

  • Before using the trail please check the suitability of the route for your planned activity, and let others know your plans. See Access for more information

When can we use the Trent Vale Trail?

  • The first section from Newark to Collingham has been open for several years and forms part of National Cycle Route 64.The next section linking Collingham to Besthorpe Nature Reserve and the village of Besthorpe opened in Spring 2020

  • The  route further north from Girton has now been agreed with the landowners and County Council and we are currently seeking funding to enable work to commence.
