An interesting walk taking in Cromwell Lock ,which was one of the first big locks to be built on the Trent in 1910. Note, the outward leg from Cromwell follows Church Lane all the way to the lock; this road is private and closed to vehicles. It's worth spending some time around the lock area, the views and historical information posted make this an interesting location. Moving on from Cromwell Lock you will be backtracking your route so far to where the Trent riverbank walking begins. Between April and September look out for sand martins, swallows and swifts. At Waymark 8 the walk starts to leave the Trent bank and you will head towards St Mary the Virgin Church spire in Carlton. The return leg follows the old Great North road (A1), now bypassed by the new road built in 1965. This road, whilst generally quiet, does have connections with the motorway for traffic accessing the local villages. You will need to take extra care around these areas. The Nag's Head in Cromwell offers refreshments, but as with many pubs, opening times are limited.
