This is a very enjoyable linear walk along field edges, established woodland and riverbanks. This is very flat countryside, allowing extensive views in all directions. In parts it follows the Nottinghamshire - Lincolnshire border. The route passes through Barnby-in-the-Willows, a village with no 'through' road, hence a quiet village with very little traffic.

Although I describe this as a linear walk, it's more like two sides of a triangle; its start and finish are joined by half-hourly (not Sundays) bus services. Service No 1 plies between Newark and Coddington and Services 2 and 3, Balderton and Newark, allowing you to park in any of those three places. The bus stop in Newark common to all of these services is on Bar Gate, very close to the roundabout in front of Newark Castle. An alternative is offered at Point 27 to add 1.5 miles and follow a country road back to the start.
