The basics The walk is 5 miles (8 kilometres) on good roads or footpaths, mainly through arable land, with few cows or horses. It’s a delightful walk, visiting three attractive local villages, and strolling along the riverside of Nottinghamshire’s most celebrated waterway. You have a choice from three excellent inns for food and drink. We have designed it so that you can start at Hazelford Ferry (parking but no inn), The Bromley at Fiskerton, the Full Moon at Morton or the Waggon and Horses at Bleasby (road parking only). It makes sense not to start on a full meal.
How to get there Follow the A612 from Nottingham or Southwell, go east at Thurgarton, through Goverton, over the level crossing. The Waggon and Horses is on Gypsy Lane, Bleasby, left off Main St; Hazelford Ferry is 3/4 mile further, over the Gibsmere junction; The Bromley is at Fiskerton. Reach the Full Moon at Morton either through Fiskerton or off the A612 corner at the eastern end of Southwell, turning right just after Fiskerton Station. We assume a Hazelford Ferry start – see text for the other alternatives.
