Dukeries Trail

'The route is a mixture of disused mineral railway line, public rights of way, and roads. Whilst the entire route is available to cyclists and walkers, substantial sections between Harby and Fledborough, from Warsop to the A614 and links into Clumber and Sherwood Forest can also be used by horse-riders ... The route has been designed so that a round trip can be made by using the train.'

'Runs across north Nottinghamshire, to the Derbyshire and Lincolnshire borders, through the former ducal estates of Clumber, Welbeck and Thoresby which were established using profits made from the region’s industrialisation. The area, between Worksop and Mansfield is still known as "The Dukeries"; follow the waymarking along the trail to link sites of historic and industrial interest, and Sherwood Forest itself.' This is a multi-user route, described in nine PDFs by Nottinghamshire County Council.
