Overview

A familiar and much-loved walk around the town of Southwell taking in the Southwell Trail up to Maythorne , then through Norwood Park , Starkey's fruit farm, Westhorpe and up Cundy hill through to Brackenhurst College. We will take one break here in the gardens, then descend across the fields back into Southwell .These field paths can be muddy and slippery so the route may vary slightly on the day depending on the conditions underfoot but we will make sure to end at The Final Whistle where walkers who wish can wet their whistles.  

Please register for this walk on Newark Ramblers website where you will also find details of our car share scheme.

When recced there were ‘inquisitive cattle’ in one field so any dogs would need to be kept on a short lead.
