|Broxtowe Country Park Trail|
|Author: , Published: 20 Apr 2015||Walk Rating:|
|A 2 mile circular walk around Broxtowe Country Park in Nottingham. This walk is one of the Nottingham Walks By Bus series, created to allow walkers to access some of Nottingham’s best walking routes via Nottingham City Transport bus routes. The walking route performs a simple loop around the small country park, taking in the areas of grassland and woodland. |
The walk has a few gentle slopes. The majority of the paths are surfaced, but some of the woodland paths can get muddy at times so sturdy shoes or boots are recommended. Dogs are welcome in the park. The entrance/exit point for the park is a metal inverted V-shape narrow squeeze gap. There are no toilets or other facilities in the park. Allow 1 hour.
The walk starts and finishes at the Coleby Road Top bus stop which is served by NCT Bus Route Orange 35. Buses run frequently seven days per week. For timetable and route details visit www.nctx.co.uk or get the NCT App.
|Start to Broxtowe Country Park|
Start point: 52.9784 lat, -1.2153 long
From Coleby Road Top bus stop, walk the short distance to the end of the road where you will reach a T-junction with Denton Green (with the Six Ways Community Centre opposite). Turn right along the pavement and then take the second road on the right, Alwyn Road. Keep directly ahead to the end of the road and pass through the metal squeeze gap to enter Broxtowe Country Park.
|Broxtowe Country Park to Woodland Path|
Start point: 52.9799 lat, -1.2196 long
Walk directly ahead down the surfaced path and at the T-junction turn left. This stone path leads you between belts of trees and shrubs. Just after the metal fencing on the left ends, you will come to a crossroads. Turn right here and follow this path with the large open meadow at the centre of the park across to your right.
|Woodland Path to Broxstowe Stream|
Start point: 52.9831 lat, -1.2206 long
Follow this stone path ahead and shortly you will come to a metal exit gate for the park on the left. Do NOT go through this, instead turn right here on the path through the centre of the woodland. Pass the bench on the left and follow the path downhill.
|Broxstowe Stream to End|
Start point: 52.9828 lat, -1.2167 long
Keep directly ahead and join a narrow stone path leading uphill between trees. As you emerge from the trees, swing right to follow the woodland edge on the right, with a line of houses running on the left. At the fork, keep right and follow the unmade narrow path winding through the centre of the woodland.

This is a small park but ideal for a short walk. A good mix of trees and open meadow Land. No 35 bus runs frequently. Main path muddy after rain and there are a few seats.

Great App - never get lost! by The Parallax View Best couple of quid I’ve spent in a long time. Walks are well described & it’s easy to see if you’ve wandered off the mapped tracks via GPS. Degree of difficulty is useful too - can choose a 2 Welly, 5 mile walk with a pub at the end for a relaxing Sunday.

Wow what a lovely experience it was using your app worked perfectly from the off for the first time found walks nearby we would have never found, brilliant work guys and gals.
This is a great app. Easy to use. Great selection of walks and very uncomplicated instructions, good simple maps. Other walking apps I have tried can be very confusing, this one is just right. Thank you
I used the app for the first time this afternoon. I lead regular ‘Walking for Health’. The app is terrific!
I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
