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.

The middle part of a long three route walk from Shirebrook to Sutton on Trent, so I started from Market Warsop.

For the most part it is a good route, though I share the previous reviewer's reservations about tricky road crossings (especially the Ollerton A614 roundabout which is very busy and has no pelican crossings). The path round the old Thoresby colliery site is easy to follow west to east but is unsurfaced and narrow in places, passing through a lot of bracken on sandy soil. If you are lucky, you may find wild raspberries. The section from Warsop to the Major Oak is on good paths, but the first part as you enter the wood is unsurfaced and a little rutted - I suspect it gets muddy when wet. I found the road walk out of Warsop a little dull - the west side of the road has pavements all the way but the one on the east side stops before the railway bridge. Note that I missed out a very short section in New Ollerton because my plan for the day was a very long walk and I didn't see the point of visiting the meeting place and doubling back.

An easy walk, no stiles no cattle, mostly good surfaces. The plotted route is good but needs care because the route sometimes leaves the obvious well walked path. No services on route but seats at the Major Oak. Only the one point of interest but good shaded woodland walking on a sunny day.

I walked New Ollerton to Market Warsop on a hot dry day. The meeting point is good then a roadside pavement to Ollerton (Old) which has a water mill, fresh clear stream and other interesting features. Not an easy crossing at the busy roundabout and the information centre and public loos has been replaced by a large eating place so the path is not so easy to locate. The sign here points to a public bridleway but it's not on the map so no idea as yet where it goes (found it on the path is now Bridleway Edwinstowe BW24).

The path we follow is not recorded as public (see edit above) but available, it leaves the well surfaced path and become a narrow rutt perhaps popular with cyclists. It eventually follows the old boundary fence of Thoresby Colliery to join a recorded bridleway where it turns west then south. This is a significant and tedious detour so I hope in the fullness of time a better route will be discovered across the colliery site which is being redeveloped.

The bridleway ends on a road. There is available a direct crossing but again it's not recorded as public so could disappear. The Slow Way soon meets the Robin Hood Way to pass the famous Major Oak said to have been the home of Robin Hood, in case the name fails to ring any bells for you. Seats here but nothing else as I passed.

Robin (RHW) eventually heads north but we continue and now in Access Land we can be confident of our right to be present, not so sure about the bikes that passed on the wide well surfaced path as there were no signs now to guide us.

We meet Robin again, returning to a right of way then a footpath that becomes a bridleway named as Ling Lane. The final stretch is along the speed humped road into Market Warsop where some drives enjoy the thrill of the humps while others use our pavement to park in safety forcing me to walk in the road.

The meeting place in Market Warsop is good with seats, shops and a bus stop close by. A difficult Slow Way to mark, poor crossing of a major road, lots of unrecorded paths, no services and a rather annoying detour around the former colliery site.
