Photo 1 was taken from the end of the land to High Marnham, and Photo 2 was taken from the Fledborough viaduct - both show the stretch of river where the bridge used to be....

I walked this from Newark to Sutton, and because I arrived at Newark Castle on the train and had a longer route planned for later in the day (SUTSAX 2), I missed out the short walk in and out of Newark town centre*. The part through and north of North Muskham is the best part of this route - the riverside path here is well trodden by locals....

From Sutton, a path leaves the road shortly beyond the junction just north of the church. The walk along the riverside path is pleasant. There is also no direct access to the Fledborough viaduct from the riverside path (there does seem to be an unofficial path that crosses crop fields illegally and scrambles up to the viaduct just west of the central bridge section but I wouldn't be comfortable recommending that.]. So the best way onto the Fledborough viaduct is to follow the roads inland and join the cycle track where it starts. Note that the cycle track leaves the road on the west side, then doubles back under the road on the old railway. There are shorter way to get from Sutton to the start of the cycle track over Fledborough viaduct, but it would be a shame to lose all of the riverside part of the walk....

Walk this route

Walked as the third part of a long three route walk from Shireoaks to Sutton on Trent via Market Warsop and New Ollerton. The route into Sutton is fine if rather unnecessarily indirect, but the detour does include a good viewpoint and avoids some road walking, albeit largely on tarmacked farm tracks....

The first shows the viaduct approaching the river Trent from the west, and the other two show the views down to the riverside path from either side of the bridge on the west side of the river....

I don't see this as a good reason to change the route, as the farmer should know better. There is also a cycle route back to Church Lane from about half a kilometer beyond this bridge which could be used to work a way back to the SUTNOR 1 route....

The road crossings between Kelham and Newark I have found to be manageable although you may have to wait a minute or two. I would have to agree that the suggested Newsut two is a safer route....

Newsut two takes you out of Newark using roundabout crossings then alongside the long, mostly straight "Great North Road" (A616)....

The second half of the walk was as nice as the first, with clearly marked paths alongside fields. The walk through Moorhouse was roadside walking (again quiet) before heading back onto fields after the empty phonebox....

Carlton Lane doesn’t have a pavement, but we didn’t see any traffic on the walk along it – only residents and Royal Mail use the road (photo 1). A zig-zag on the route map took us onto a marshy field for a short and completely pointless detour around the village – you are better off following the road through Carlton to meet up at the stile to continue the walk (this zig-zag has been removed from Newsut 2). The walk out of Carlton took us along a short stretch of the Great North Road, immediately to the side of the A1. Here you meet roads again but the verge by the road into South Muskham is wide and again safe to walk on (photo 9). This road begins with a verge (photo 10), but this rapidly disappears and so we had to squeeze into hedges to avoid the large SUV’s that were reluctant to slow down on the narrow road (no photo – it was too dangerous to dawdle!)....

The approach to East Markham just past Meadow Cottage suggest going off road on the left to follow the railway on a footpath for 3/4miles where there appears to be a crossing on the railway....
