Overview

'OnTrent is working with partners throughout the Trent to bring about a Trent Valley Way stretching some 170 miles from its source near Stoke to the Humber. Already established for 84 miles through Nottinghamshire, it will be a long distance footpath and, where possible, multi-user way throughout the Trent Valley.' Wikipedia also usefully summarises the history to date.
