Warsop Walk 5
This walk takes us between Market Warsop and Church Warsop along both ancient and recent paths. It includes The Carrs Local Nature Reserve, Church Warsop’s Doorstep Green, part of the Hills & Holes Site of Special Scientific Interest and a stretch alongside the River Meden.
This walk is about 3 kilometres (2 miles) and should take less than an hour
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. Follow the path (FP2) 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 and follow the path across the Doorstep Green that runs parallel to Carter Lane. You may wish to lengthen the walk by completing a circuit of the green.
Leave the green through a metal squeeze stile onto Gipsy Lane - the bridleway (BW7) that leads to the Welfare. Turn left and then right onto Carter Lane. After about 80 metres cross the road and take the bridleway (BW4) heading back to Market Warsop.
Continue along this old route until you reach the green metal bridge at Stone Bridge. Turn left down the stone steps and follow the river back to the starting point, crossing the river at the wooden bridge shortly after the BMX track.
