Help connect Navenby

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 Navenby’s Slow Ways.

Emerging from beneath the arch of an now disused train bridge, I found myself on a quiet backroad leading out of the village; care should be taken on this section as there are a couple of blind corners and no footpaths save for the grass verge itself, however I encountered no traffic at all in the short distance spent on this road before the route dog-legged south on a marked path. I should have taken the road, as the field side soon sees a small ditch widening as it reaches the river; rather than retrace my steps, I chanced a fairly hairy dive across the ditch followed by a scramble up the other side - aided by roots and branches- towards a small gap in the hedge through which I could rejoin the road. Having crossed the river via the road bridge, the route turns diagonally across a field, through a section of small patchwork sunflower and vegetable crops which resembled allotments, before joining a farm track leading to the main street of Brant Broughton. Having looked at the map again and revisited this spot since, I can see my mistake, but I’d advise looking closely at the map for this section, as the paths leading from the fields to the street were easy to miss. Heading across to Brant Broughton church via streets flanked with large, grand old houses, the route then crosses several fields, going parallel to the A17 road in a straight line to the Military Training Camp at Beckingham. Crossing a large open grassy field full of inquisitive sheep, I reached the main road in Coddington and shortly thereafter, The Plough public house. It is worth adding, though, that I am more than familiar with the remaining 2-mile section of the route; it is simply a paved footpath by the side of the main road leading from Coddington into Newark, and is very easy going on account of it being all downhill until you reach the town centre....

Very nice route, and accurately plotted. I ran from South to North. Good views and easy to find paths, some mud....

I have not walked this route, but for anyone who does, please be aware that the middle section, through Green Man Woods to Metheringham Lodge, is not a public right of way. Attached below are photos taken from the Metheringham Lodge end showing clear signage advising this is not accessible....

This section of the route up the hill did feel somewhat unnecessary; not direct, adding gates and accessibility issues and a section of road-walking that didn't feel overly safe. Back down the hill to Welbourn, which had a good shop and bus stop, though the footpath into the village was overgrown. Overall a good straightforward route, but it did feel there were some unnecessary diversions, climbs and road-walking that could have been avoided by a more direct route....
