This circular walk is from the ancient and attractive village of Car Colston in the borough of Rushcliffe, Nottinghamshire. The village sits in a large conservation Area and has 13 listed buildings. It is notable for its two greens, the larger of which is allegedly the largest village green in England. The Royal Oak pub sits on the larger green and serves quality food and ales.

The route takes you through the village of Scarrington, also within the Conservation Area and includes four listed buildings. As you approach the village, listen out for the cockerels calling in an old farmyard. Depart briefly from the route at the church by turning left to see the 17ft / 5m-high pile of 50,000 old horseshoes standing next to Grade II-listed Old Forge.
