Summary: The Trent Valley Way is a waymarked long distance footpath in England following the River Trent and its valley downstream from Nottinghamshire to Lincolnshire where it outflows into the Humber. The waymark consisted of a white disc with a blue arrow containing three wavy white lines. From the starting point of the walk at Long Eaton the way head north-east via Nottingham, Radcliffe on Trent, Shelford, East Bridgford, Gunthorpe, Fiskerton, Rollerston, Upton and Kelham to Newark-on-Trent. The way then continues following the river in a generally north direction through Collingham, Dunham on Trent, Laneham and Trent Port before heading across country via Gringley on the Hill, Haxey, Epworth and Isle of Axholme to cross the M62 morotway and track back to the river near Scunthorpe. From here a parallel course to the river is followed through Flixborough and Burton upon Stather to the finish in Alkborough. There is a path which goes on from Alkborough to the rivers end if one wishes to see the point where the Trent flows into the Humber.
