Help connect Killamarsh

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Killamarsh’s Slow Ways.

There is a shorter and quieter route heading north then west onto Regent Street to meet Boughton Lane opposite our exit footpath. The green lane is fine but in March 2024 the footpath alongside the stream, which was flowing well, was rather muddy making this potential commuter route from Clowne a bit off putting. The road crossing is safe before a bit of estate road which leads to a delightful green corridor with a good surfaced path through Slayley Green, perhaps the highlight of the walk. The roadside walk into Killamarsh was fine, downhill most of the way, bit of a drag in the opposite direction I guess and only the bramble infested path to look forward to....

Services I'm told at the country park centre just off route. The link path to the Country Park is poor and the right of way that we should follow is across the low ground that was wet on my visit. We meet the long vehicle access road to the Rother Valley Country Park which can be avoided if conditions are right by using the river side but there is a wide grass verge and even a stoned path alongside the road....

We are on the pavement of the road as we climb out of Killamarsh along High Street, Upperthorpe Road and Hut Lane. There is 100m or so of footpath from the road before we reach agate leading to a thin but clear path alongside the fences and through woody scrubland. We turn left and climb to cross the Clowne Greenway to reach the road at Slayley Hill....

Following the river alongside the Rother Valley access road leads to playing fields, by staying on the embankment you will find a path (not particularly obvious so watch out for it) that goes between houses and leads to Killamarsh where there's a selection of shops and cafes....

Where Church Lane turns right up the hill, we take the surfaced footpath steeply uphill to the junction of Sheffield Road, Mansfield Road and Rotherham Road, We cross and head down Rotherham Road (stay on the left hand pavement - the one on the right does not continue as far as our exit). We ignore the Cuckoo Way signs and continue to an unsignposted drive on the right, which takes us back to the line of the canal and heads uphill along a surfaced lane through gardens, passing several of the former lock pools of the canal....

From the bus stop in Clowne, a zebra crossing takes us over Mill Green Way, and we follow the main roads round to Boughton Lane, where we turn right to find a little used footpath, which has a couple of stiles and also excellent views over the escarpment. It goes through a green strip between industrial sites to a pond, then left to the roundabout where we cross Oxcroft Way and turn right up Slayley View Road, then left along a surfaced path through parkland. Chesterfield Road forces us left, and the path takes us up to the road at a convenient pelican crossing....

The next section begins through pasture and then follows a route across the landscaped site of the former colliery now known as Kiveton Community Woodland. After crossing the quiet road the path approaches the end of the canal (where it once emerged from a tunnel) the tow path starts along the south bank of the canal, the Cuckoo Way right of way follows the north side (this section is a thin path through vegetation that will be muddy after wet weather)....

Crossing a road the dry canal bed is now apparent as is the narrow towpath which passes under a skeletal former rail bridge then a fenced section where the canal has vanished. Crossing the river by an unrecorded but well maintained footbridge it's roadside walking from here and a drag to the isolated bus stop, passing Eckington Bus Station and shops on the way which confirms that the meeting place needs moving....

A good country walk using in part the Cuckoo Way which explores this disused section of the Chesterfield canal. The cutting on the right suggests the canal but this was a railway, the canal was in a tunnel under our feet....

A section over the former Norwood tunnel is well signed. Cross the canal to stay on the towpath this offers the best view approaching the vegetation covered entrance to Norwood tunnel. A continuous raised hump alongside the path suggests spoil from the tunnel confirming we are on route. Kiveton Water, used for fishing is the proposed site of a marina when the canal climbs higher to avoid restoration of the tunnel. The cutting on the right suggests the canal but this was a railway, the canal was in the tunnel under our feet. The roar of the motorway can't be avoided as we pass underneath before a descent to find the abandoned and overgrown tunnel mouth and canal....
