Slow Ways linking Kiveton Park and Dinnington (Rotherham), Killamarsh, Swallownest, Worksop

Help connect Kiveton Park

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 Kiveton Park’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

From Kiveton Bridge station, we head left along the main street of Wales, then right up Chestnut Avenue and left on Storth Lane. At the corner by Nickerwood Farm we turn right - here the right of way goes right of the hedge but the cut line looked very narrow and there were traces of a path on the clear field to the left. Note that there is no path left where the right of way line should be, and in retrospect it would have been better to take the lower path into the field rather than the one in the far corner....

Where the road bears left in a little green space we go straight on onto The Green, then take the paved path half right which goes steeply downhill, with a few steps at the bottom, Another path with steps can be used to cut the corner onto The Wells, which we follow left a little, then find another paved path which crosses the river and the railway to reach South Anston. We go left a short distance along Wilberforce Road then use another paved path to reach the A57. In my view the GPX is a little misleading - it is best to head left to use the pelican crossing to cross the main road, and from there it makes sense to go straight up the path opposite to reach the village centre, where we head straight on up West Street....

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....

I walked from Kiveton Park where the meeting point is confusing located at Kiveton Bridge station not Kiveton Park station. The route through the houses was a mix of roads and paths although it appears I didn't follow the plotted route which stays on roads only. Back on roads with firm boundaries it's an easy walk downhill to the meeting place along Mansfield Road, is that named after the rather distant destination or just a town theme I wonder?...

The route begins from the new precinct, uphill to reach the older settlement of stone-built houses around St Giles church. The next section begins through pasture and then follows a route through the colliery remains now known as Kiveton Community Woodland....

It begins on the pavement of the main road and then along quiet residential streets....

From here 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)....

It is an easy and fairly direct route, but not particularly scenic....

Killamarsh—Kiveton Park

Ken added Kilkiv two, a new walk from Killamarsh to Kiveton Park

Walk this route

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....

The link to the canal could be improved but once on the towpath it's simple navigation along a bonded surface path. From here I now see that the plot uses the public footpath north of the canal which may explain the further drop in surface quality because I stayed on the towpath which offered the best view approaching the vegetation covered entrance to Norwood tunnel. There was never a towing path through the tunnel so we must go over the top and the path now enters a field so real county walking although a stone surface has been laid. Kiveton Water used for fishing is the proposed site of a marina when the canal climbs higher to avoid restoration of the tunnel....

A very pleasant walk along the Chesterfield canal, a railway station at each end with hourly trains so transport not a problem. Well signposted & obviously no climbs of any note. Would highly recommend the walk....

Basically it is a similar route but on the first section (junction of Station Road and Anston Avenue) instead of carrying straight ahead as this route directs you to, follow a footpath between houses up a hill, coming out at the top onto a farmers field then follow the diagonal footpath for a short distance across the field on to Kiveton Lane to rejoin the original route. It is a nicer walk away from the main road and also cuts the distance down). Another nice section (although very steep but for a short distance) is the footpath taking you up to The Green in old North Anston....
