Market Warsop, Church Warsop and Warsop Vale

June 10, 2012

Warsop Parish is made up of the villages of Market Warsop with the shops, Church Warsop which has the  church and Warsop Vale. Two other villages, Meden Vale and Spoin Kop, are also part of the parish. The River Meden runs through the Warsop communities with large park called the Carrs laid out along its banks.

Market Warsop has so far retained a busy range of shops. The centres of both Market Warsop and Church Warsop have village cores with a range of old stone buildings.

The parish has a website called Warsopweb and  Warsop Vale History Society has a website.


Warsop walk 1   Leisurely 7.5 miles (12 km)  The eastern side of Warsop Parish has ancient lanes, fine views and a variety of coniferous and deciduous woodland. Birds are plentiful in the hedgerows, wildflowers are abundant along Budby Drive and in autumn fungi thrive beneath the beech trees and at the sides of the cycle route.

Warsop walk 2  Leisurely – 3.8 miles (6km) includes open fields, woodland, a farm road and an old lane. You may wish to spend time investigating Cuckney’s mill pond or stop for a drink at the Greendale Oak.

Warsop walk 3 Leisurely – 3.8 miles (6km) Now the pit has gone, nature is reclaiming the pit yard, the tip has been sensitively remodelled and new habitats created. This walk includes both of Warsop’s Sites of
Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs), the Hills & Holes and Lord Stubbins Wood. The return through Collier Spring Wood provides a fascinating contrast.

Warsop walk 4  Leisurely – 3.8 miles (6km) This walk takes us around the south of the parish along all three types of right of way – byway, a bridleway and a footpath. You should enjoy fine views and see a variety of birds in the hedgerows flanking the lanes.

this walk and the return section is mainly along quiet lanes. Recommended

Warsop walk 9  Moderate – 8 miles  (13km)  The route includes old lanes, woodland and the sites of the two country mansions. Unfortunately it is impossible to avoid sections of road walking but interesting features along the route compensate for this.
