Description

This route improves Brekeg1 by removing the hazardous roadside out of Breaston and replacing that section with cross-field paths, it also improves the poorly plotted track of the Brekeg1 route. The footpath route through the gravel workings is on the ground but not where the OS says it should be !

Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

I walked this route from Breaston. It begins on the pavement of the main road but soon takes to a quiet lane and then across the fields towards Sawley. There are quiet residential roads leading to the crossing under the railway and then more quiet residential roads lead to the bridge over the river Trent. The footway here is quite narrow, but you are off the road. After the bridge there is a footpath around the perimeter of the marina (avoiding the roadside) before following the quiet Warren Lane southwards. Half a mile after the railway bridge (at a sharp bend) the route joins a right of way across pasture fields. After the lane crossing there is a diverted path through the gravel workings, marked with wayposts. Some of this is quite rough underfoot. Beyond the quarry we follow the quiet Long Lane to the bridge over the A453. After the bridge, a farm track alongside the main road leads to a footpath across the fields. The route rejoins Long Lane and enters Kegworth on the pavements of quiet residential roads. There are shops and refreshments in Breaston, Old Sawley and Kegworth.
