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.

Who is behind the development the Trent Vale Trail?

  • The Trail has come about as a result of fund rasing and planning conducted by the Friends of Trent Vale Trail (a registered charity) supported by local authorities and other organisations.

​​

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 and forms part of National Cycle Route 64.

  • The second 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. In October 2022 this was extended along the Fleet to Girton and northwards beyond the Sailing Club Lake to just short of Clifton Hill.

  • The next section will take the trail over Clifton Hill to South Clifton. Eventually it is intended to link 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
