Pleasley Pit Country Park

1 miles (2 km)

This former colliery site in Mansfield has been converted into a lovely country park and local nature reserve. There are a series of nice walking trails taking you to ponds, reed beds, grassland and woodland. It's great for flora and fauna with orchids, butterflies and dragonflies. There's also a bird hide where you can look out for Sand Martins and the various other species that visit the park.
The park also includes a cycle path so you can bring your bike. Parking is available at the south eastern end of the park.
You can also learn about the history of the site by touring the engines and south shaft pit top on open days. The remaining pit buildings are an impressive sight and are now a Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM).
If you would like to extend your walk you could head a mile to the east and visit Pleasley Woods. Here you will find more good walking trails within broadleaved and coniferous woodland. Also nearby is the wonderful Hardwick Hall Park where you will find miles of footpaths taking you around 2,500 acres of parkland, woodland, wetland and farmland. This is located just a couple of miles west of Pleasley.
