Venues & Events

At Sherwood Nordic Walking we are lucky to have three fantastic regular venues as well as fabulous open countryside, nature reserves and bridleways to explore.

Monday Taster sessions and Technique courses are at Thoresby Park. We also have some Monday Adventure and Wellness walks here where the scenery is ever-changing with the seasons.

We have the privilege of using the multitude of wide trails and woodland paths throughout the Sherwood Forest at Sherwood Pines! There are Taster, Technique courses and Adventure walks taking place here.

Wellness Walks

Imitating the popular Monday and Friday Adventure walks, the Monday and Thursday Wellness walks are at a gentle pace and cover a shorter distance of 2-3 miles. These are perfect for newly trained nordic walkers, those with health concerns or those who haven’t been on a nordic walk for a while.

Thursday Taster and Technique courses are based at Langold Country Park where we are lucky enough to have woodland tracks, a lakeside path and a spectacular view from the pit top!

Friday Adventures

The highlight of the week is our Friday Adventure walk. Come and explore North Notts and South Yorkshire on our 4-5 miles Adventure walks. We visit Clumber Park, the Chesterfield canal, Idle Valley nature reserve and Creswell Crags, as well as planned routes across open countryside and woodland.

Our members often come up with new and exciting places to walk, so we occasionally have away days.

Special Events

Challenges, festivals and joint walks with other NWUK groups.
