I walked this as part of a long three part walk from Shirebrook to Sutton on Trent via Market Warsop and New Ollerton. Since I was starting from the station and had a long walk ahead of me, I missed out the short street walk from the centre of Shirebrook, but I have done that before and know that it is fine.

This is an easy walk that fits Slow Ways methodology well, mostly on good surfaced tracks and pavements, apart from a short unsurfaced section on the north side of the river Meden. There are no steps or stiles. Note that on leaving Shirebrook station the path goes down to the right of the road (west) and goes under the road using an old railway bridge - the layout of this area is a little confusing, but would be more obvious in the other direction.

I walked this route from Market Warsop. It begins on quiet residential roads and after crossing the river Meden rises to reach Carter Lane. There is a footway alongside this busy road. We turn off on a gravelled track (signposted as a cycleway) which takes us all the way to Shirebrook station. From here there are quiet roads with pavements all the way to the market place.
