Walks around Cropwell Bishop

More walks will be added in the months ahead.

Cropwell Bishop is an old village but still relatively small. Ancient rights-of-way lie all around us and we live just a few minutes away from them.

The aim of these articles is to give you the confidence to explore your surroundings on foot without the need for someone to accompany you – and without the fear of trespassing on private land.

After a couple of walks you willl come to see your home village differently: a small community surrounded by hills, agriculture, history and wonderful views.

It all looks so different from the views through your car window.

These stories are your guide to this, real, world on your doorstep – and it's all for free.

If you are viewing this on an iPad, tablet or computer, you will probably see the pictures in the guides two abreast. If you are using a mobile phone, the pictures will appear in a single column in numerical order – ideal for walkers.

Take your phone with you on the walk and you can always refer to the guide. It might be a good idea to download the page at home before you set off.

The numbers on the map, along the route, refer to the numbered photos that accompany it.

Enjoy your walks.

Cropwell Bishop Walking Group

From 2008 to 2015, there was a Walking Group in the village. Anyone could join, and several times a year, people would gather for a Sunday morning walk. All walks started in the Wheatsheaf car park and ended by mid-day.

Over the years they trod just about every possible route within those start and time constraints. It is those routes that are now gradually being published on the website.

The stories and photographs of those walks reveal many changes in the village and people since then – and can still be explored on this website. They are stored in the Archive section but you can go straight to them by clicking the link at the bottom.

It will take you to an earlier version of this website.

At the top of its page you will find tabs for six sections – including Walks, which is already selected. That page contains only two stories but many more are available.

On the right-hand side of the page, you will find links to another 22 pages, some containing several stories.

Please be aware that the earlier version of the website was less refined and less user friendly on mobile phones. You will have to use your browser arrow tabs to return to previous pages.
