I walked most one from Clifton to Long Eaton. It is mostly good, but is let down by some slightly wayward GPX plotting and the avoidable dull road walk on Thane Road - as Stephen says the river path is much nicer. The direct path from Clifton to Fairham Brook is overgrown and hard to follow - it is much easier to stay on the cycle track. The route from Fairham Brook to Clifton Bridge is not the best either - there is an underpass available that is much better than walking round the busy roundabout. I have created LONCLI 2, which is what I actually walked.

I walked this route on a very hot day in July. The sections along the river and through Attenborough Nature Reserve had some very welcome shade, but most of the walk was very exposed. The paths throughout the walk are easy surfaces to walk on, and there is a nice variety of road, fields and waterside walking. There are opportunities to stop for breaks or snacks at Beeston Marina and along the canal (especially if you manage to catch the cafe boat).

If you start at Long Eaton and are arriving by public transport, bear in mind that the train station is not in the town centre, and to start the route from the beginning you would need to go in and out of town. You could avoid this by walking along Fields Farm Road and joining the route at the top of Meadow Lane, or following the Erewash Canal to start on the river path earlier (although this does lengthen the walk).

I walked this route in early March, starting in Long Eaton. The walk follows roadside pavements until south of the railway level crossing on Meadow Lane, where it enters the nature reserves. The section from here to Beeston marina was on well surfaced tracks - easy going. If I was to walk this again I would continue along the riverside from Beeston Weir to Clifton Bridge (more interesting surfaced path (See Beecli2)). As it was I followed the suggested route parallel to the canal - soft and muddy for the most part. After Clifton bridge I followed the roadside path to get the signed footpath through an underpass. Reaching the surfaced footpath up the side of Fairham Brook meant going down a flight of concrete steps (with no obvious alternatives). Once in Clifton the path was on wider pavements along the roadside.
