The Retford Round Robin Route starts and ends in Whitwell.

Route devised by the LSW team.

Starting from the Royal Oak pub in the village of Whitwell, this is a walk around the Bassetlaw District of North Notts and South Yorkshire. Taking in a variety of walking surfaces, the route meanders alongside the Chesterfield Canal, passes through the Osberton estate… skirts the prison at Ranby… and trundles over fields and lanes as we wind our way towards the National Trust estate of Clumber Park before heading back through Welbeck estates on our return to Whitwell. Basically a flat route, perfect for newcomers wanting to experience a 40 mile challenge walk. Don’t be fooled however; it is still an extreme event as most people don’t walk 4 miles never mind 40!
Walkers of all experiences will enjoy the range of fantastic scenery and views encountered during this bijoux strollette.

Route next planned for the 23rd June 2018 walk.
