Go round the pond on a good path and cross Car Dyke on a footbridge (SK70704.40772) to pick up the right-of-way which takes you to the roundabout on the old A46 near Burrowfields farm, via High Westing farm....

Note that the bridlepath south of Newton has only just reopened after a short closure due to the ongoing housing development there, and it is possible there may be further closures or diversions as this work continues, if so there is an alternative route round the NE of Newton, or you could use the field path to Saxondale. From the railway bridge, go NE up Shelford Road and take the first left turn into Oak Tree Avenue, then turn left again into Fernwood Drive, taking the right fork where it splits. There are also two options for joining the field path to Shelford - there is a well trodden path round the top edge of the field but the right of way line crosses lower down and is still clearly marked and trodden. We soon leave the road to turn right onto the old RAF Newton airfield, and follow the bridlepath round past the old airfield buildings and then left along the edge of the housing development....

The most important change is that the route from Thorpe to Farndon now uses a road bridge to cross the A46 - I have also modified the route out of Bingham to reduce the number of steps. The route out of Bingham crosses the railway and crosses a small park, then a field path goes over a small hill to a junction of drainage ditches - the path crosses these on bridges and takes a fairly direct line bypassing the villages of Car Colston and Screveton to the Hawksworth road....

This is almost a very good route (not a wheel friendly one as it has steps and a few stiles and is largely on unsurfaced field paths). Sadly the A46 crossing it uses is no longer possible - the road, a busy dual carriageway) is protected by barbed wire fences and hedges and the field path on the Thorpe side is little used, overgrown and very difficult to follow - I have created an alternative (Binnew 2) that uses most of the route I actually used instead - I decided that the best continuation from Thorpe north is to stay on the road up to the A46 bridge. I would also be tempted to modify the route out of Bingham slightly - it uses the bridge at the station which has steps on both sides, and it is not immediately obvious where the footpath beyond starts - there is a flat level crossing a little further east that might be better for anyone not arriving from the Nottingham direction by train. Most of the field paths are fairly well maintained and pleasant to walk, so most of the route can be used as the basis of a better one....

The shortcut path up to the A46 bridge is narrow and a little overgrown, and involves going up a number of steps - it might be better to use the longer more easily graded surfaced path for accessibility reasons. The road this path emerges onto has no pavement, but is reasonably quiet. Another unsurfaced field path takes us to the A6097 - cross with care and patience as this road can be busy, then follow the lane a short distance and take the bridlepath left. Use the main gate into the churchyard, and follow the paths down to the bottom end of the graveyard, where a path takes you out to the field path alongside the road down Cuttle Hill. The shortcut path through the next field goes through an overgrown fallow field, so finding the right line requires a degree of confidence. Where the bridleway turns right, take the field path that follows the river bank across the meadow. Watch out for the right turn, which is a narrow overgrown path that is passable with care - this leads under a bridge and up a few steps and emerges onto a surfaced road. The surfaced road goes through another locked gate, but a little path continues down to the left, and soon splits....

The GPX follows the right of way line on the field path to Cropwell Butler, but in the first field this would involve crop trampling, and it appears that the path has diverted round the edge for some time. Passing through Cropwell Butler, the way continues over a cricket field where the path briefly disappears....

On the map, this route appealed to me more than BinBot one, as it avoids the A52 and I liked the idea of following the river east of Aslockton....

This was the route I was eventually forced to follow when attempting to review BinBot two, apart from the shortened line through Bottesford which I used to walk back from the station to the bus stop in the centre of the village after finishing (which I had to do because I walked the route on a rail strike day). Apart from the unavoidable road walk into Bottesford, it is mostly on good but unsurfaced field paths. The only minor accessibility issues are a couple of stiles and a slightly overgrown section on which the nettles are difficult to avoid, both on the way out of Bingham and unavoidable without a major rethink....

This is a quick route that is on pavements and surfaced paths throughout, with no stiles, steps or other obstacles. However it is very uninspiring - far too much of it is on the pavement of a busy main road, so it is never quiet. There are other possibilities (for example going via Shelford) but all of them are significantly longer and would probably have more accessibility issues....

Having eventually reached the path in the Netherfield Lagoons nature reserve navigation becomes a lot easier. The path is up the side of the road on a wide verge before taking to the flood-bank. On the other side we take to a quiet road and after the cut-off across the fields parallel the road into East Bridgford on a well walked path. The busy A6097 road is crossed, and the path resumes on the other side....

From Cotgrave, the walk is along the Grantham Canal towpath to Fosse Bridge, then crosses fields to the pretty village of Cropwell Butler with its pub, The Plough, The route then follows further field paths to the market town of Bingham. Care is needed when crossing the A52, a busy road, but there is a pedestrian island to make it easier. Some of the paths are not signposted, but are well trod, so can be followed with the aid of a map....
