Warsop Walk 10

This walk is a circuit around Church Warsop, taking in Collier Spring Wood and a path along the parish boundary that was only officially declared a public right of way in July 2009. It covers a variety of woodland and gives fine views from the higher ground of Cuckney Hill.

This walk is just over 5 kilometres (3 miles) and should take between 1 and 2 hours.

Directions
Start at the bridge onto The Carrs near to the telephone exchange building opposite Hetts Lane. Head straight across The Carrs along the concessionary cycle route (FP2). Follow the path across the field and then alongside the hedge towards Church Warsop.

When the road is reached cross the main road and take Wood Lane opposite. After about 50 metres take the entrance on the left between the playground and Woodside Hall. Keep to the left around the football pitch then follow the path to the right behind the Miners’ Welfare.

Leave the green through a metal squeeze stile and turn right onto Gipsy Lane (BW7) - the bridleway that runs beside the Welfare. Turn left when you reach Wood Lane.
When you reach the woods on the left take the path into the woods, keeping close to the left edge of the woodland until a main path leaves to the right. Follow this path as it runs parallel to the disused railway and joins Wood Lane at the “broken bridge”.

Turn left and follow Wood Lane through the remains of the bridge and then take the turn on the right uphill between the woods and a hedge. Keep on this path until the path from Warsop to Cuckney (FP1) is reached.

Turn right along the forest track until the path (FP1) leaves the woods and heads across cultivated fields. If conditions are dry continue on this path but you may opt to turn left onto FP44 to the top of Cuckney Hill and walk down the A60. The alternative routes converge at the kissing gate opposite the cemetery.

Follow the A60 past the church, cross the Mill Dam and walk alongside the River Meden back to our starting point.
