EAST BRIDGFORD AND THE TRENT

Group: Rushcliffe

Start gridref: SK691 431
Nearest town: West Bridgford, Nottingham
Start time: 10:30am

Distance: 4 miles
Longer description: Leaving East Bridgford the walk heads to the Trent and then diverts up the Trent Hills before dropping to the river meadows. The walk then returns to the hill top skirting the edge of the wooded cliffside before descending to the river to enjoy the views of the weir at Gunthorpe. We finally return via the road and a field path to East Bridgford. (The route can be muddy). There will be the option of a pub lunch after the walk.

Special note: Please note that the pub is opening especially for us for lunch today so it would be extremely helpful if you could let the Walk leader know your intentions in advance if possible. Contact details below. However, if you decide at the last minute that you would like to stop for lunch, you will be most welcome to do so.

The Rushcliffe Group is a large group with members varying in age from 40 somethings to the mature 70 year olds. We are based in the South of Nottinghamshire, and our walks are in the neighboroughing Counties of Leicestershire, Rutland, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, as well as our own County of Nottinghamshire. We have a varied programme of walks covering distances from 3 miles to 13 miles, and we walk on most Sundays, occasional Saturdays and various days mid-week.

Join us for a walk this spring as part of the Nottinghamshire Festival of Walks. For more details go to www.nottsarearamblers.co.uk

General Note

Walks highlighted with the Get Walking Week logo are free and open to all. They're run by Ramblers Groups and projects and Walking for Health schemes to help everyone discover the joys and benefits of walking.

Other walks listed here are intended primarily for Ramblers members. Non-members are welcome to join us on two or three walks, though if you walk with a group regularly you'll be expected to join the Ramblers.

For all walks listed here, please make sure that you're fit enough to undertake the walk you intend to join. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short and easy walk first. It's much better to find a walk a little too slow or easy than to exhaust yourself.

Some walks are off-road in rural areas. Please have suitable footwear and clothing for the walk you intend to join and bring some food and drink - even if the walk includes a pub or café break.

Walk leaders may refuse to accept participants who in their opinion are inadequately equipped or unfit. When in doubt, contact the organiser or leader in advance. For the safety of yourself and others please follow any advice and guidelines issued by the organiser and the instructions of the leader. Although walking is a very low risk activity, no activity is completely without risk and it is your responsibility to behave sensibly and to minimise the potential for accidents.
