There is no better way to enjoy a delightful Autumn day than packing your rucksack, lacing those boots and taking a walk back in time, through one of North Nottinghamshire’s most historic towns, quaint villages, pretty waterways and surrounding countryside. The small and attractive market town of East Retford in North Nottinghamshire is one of the oldest boroughs in England and is steeped in history and local folklore, from the notorious Highwayman, Dick Turpin, to the most legendary outlaw, Robin Hood. Our walk takes us over field edge tracks, through ancient woodland and by road, before joining our pretty waterway path along the Chesterfield Canal, where we will stop for a delightful picnic provided by BaRnby’s from Blyth.
