Follow the waymarked trails through the Welbeck Estate on this easy walk on the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire border. The Welbeck Abbey estate is located just to the south west of Worksop. You can begin your walk from the Harley Gallery car park just of the A60 in Welbeck. Just to the north of the car park you can pick up a section of the Robin Hood Way long distance footpath. If you follow it east it will take you through the estate to the lovely Shrubbery and Gouldsmeadow Lakes. The path passes between the two lakes with splendid views across the woodland and parkland of the estate.
This walk finishes at South Lodge just past the lakes but you can keep heading east through the woodland to Clumber Park. It's only a few miles away and a great way to extend your walk. Also nearby is the lovely Cresswell Crags. Here you will find a fascinating limestone gorge set on the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire border. The crags are just to the west of the start point for this walk so are easy to visit at the same time. If you head up to Cresswell Crags you could then follow the Robin Hood Way south east through the Welbeck Deer Park. Here you can look out for the beautiful white deer.
