Who doesn’t like walking along a river? We know that walking has lots of benefits over above simple enjoyment; it boosts the immune system, improves joint flexibility and helps lower blood pressure. Even better, walking in the outdoors, amongst nature, has been proven to boost our mood and improve our mental wellbeing.
The Trent Valley Way has been created to provide an opportunity to explore the River Trent Valley; passing cities, towns and villages; connecting with wildlife and places of interest. It connects the cities and towns which have built their business, industry and heritage on the River Trent, or within its floodplain.
What is the Trent Valley Way?

The Trent Valley Way forms a popular tourist attraction and a key part of the Trent Valley landscape. A map of the whole of the Trent Valley Way within the Transforming the Trent Valley project area is available here.
Below are links to detailed maps showing the route for the Trent Valley Way within the Transforming the Trent Valley project area. As well as the main Trent Valley Way, there are also a series of circular routes connected to the main path taking in other points of interest and visitor attractions close to the River Trent. The maps will open from the Trent Rivers Trust website where you can also find maps for the remainder of the Trent Valley Way outside of the Transforming the Trent Valley scheme area
