Bolsover and Chesterfield Walks

Since lockdown, a walk in the great outdoors has been on of the few ways people have been able to get a change of scenery during restrictions, and when you're a dog walker, this is all the more welcome as some of the routes can become tiresome.

Luckily Chesterfield and neighbouring Bolsover district has access to many trails, parks and footpaths where you can explore some beautiful places, right on your doorstep. And as restrictions begin to lift, maybe somewhere to add to your post lockdown to-do list:

Clowne Branch Greenway

An old railway line which is accessible for buggies, wheelchairs, bikes and scooters. The full length runs from Creswell to Poolsbrook however there are sections you can join in between. Its perfect for children and dogs with some lovely scenery to enjoy along the way. Linear walk.


The Five Pits Trail

A super 5 mile linear trail from Grassmoor ountry park to Tibshelf ponds and has recently been resurfaced, so ideal for buggies and wheelchairs.

The Stockley Trail

This trail runs from the Peter Fidler Nature reserve (also worth a visit) to Glapwell. Its a 2 mile trail for walkers and cyclists. Car parking available off the A632 at the bottom of Bolsover Hill adjacent to the nature reserve.


Chesterfield Canal

The Chesterfield canal towpath or 'Cuckoo Way' forms part of the Transpennine Trail and has numerous walks and trails where you can join. Either start at Renishaw and do the Brindley loop circular walk or try the Staveley coffee shop walk for a shorter route.

The Avenue Country Park

Escape the hustle and bustle with this quiet country park, view our blog post here

Linacre Reservoir

One of our favourite walks with children and dogs, with a decent sized car park and lots of woodland to explore, its the perfect day out. A circular 5-6km walk. Some sections not buggy friendly, sling recommended. Toilets open.


Poolsbrook Country Park

This is great for little legs and complete with cafe, playground (gated) and toilets. 2 car parks depending on where you enter the park and there is lots of trails venturing further if you are able. Buggy friendly. Ducks to feed too.


Holmebrook Valley park

A large country park on the outskirts of Chesterfield which is great for children and dog friendly. There is a decent sized play area, cycle paths and footpaths to follow in and around the park which are popular with dog walkers. Cafe and car park.
