Walks Around Warsop - Walk 4
This walk takes us around the south of the parish. We leave Market Warsop along Oakfield Lane heading towards Redbrick House and return via Westfield House and Spion Kop. You should enjoy fine views and see a variety of birds in the hedgerows flanking the lanes. We use all three types of right of way found in Warsop as we travel along a byway, a bridleway and a footpath. This walk is about 6 kilometres and should take between 1 and 2 hours.
Leave Market Warsop along Oakfield Lane passing under the railway bridge and past the recycling centre. The lane is a BOAT (Byway Open to All Traffic) so there is a possibility of vehicles using this route. Continue past the side entrance to Redbrick House to Peafield Lane. You may either turn right and walk along the verge of the busy Peafield Lane for 300 metres or, if you wish to avoid the traffic, carefully cross the road and enter the plantation opposite and walk along a rather muddy track that runs parallel to the road. Turn right through a gate and follow the bridleway (BW19) down towards the farm. Take
the path around the edge of the paddock as you approach Westfield House. The bridleway now becomes a surfaced farm road leading to the A60. Take care crossing the road and turn right alongside the A60 towards Warsop as far as Spion Kop. Turn right up the hill, forking left and continuing until the road ends at a farm. Enter the farmyard, keep straight ahead as far as the barn where the footpath (FP20) turns right then left. Follow this path until it joins Oakfield Lane, turning left and returning to your starting point.
