Teversal Trails Visitors Centre
Teversal Trails Visitors Centre, Carnarvon Street, Teversal, Sutton in Ashfield, NG17 3HJ
The Teversal Trails Visitors Centre is the best location for visitors who want to find out about walking, cycling, and horse-riding trails in the Nottinghamshire countryside. Plenty of information on the Teversal Trails routes are available at this centre. Many are dog-friendly trails, with parts that are wheelchair-friendly due to the flat surface. Located on former railway lines on the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire border, the routes starts at the Teversal Trails Visitors Centre that offers free car parking, a café, picnic space, and toilets.
Much of the trails network has now been designated as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) with tor grass, yellow oat grass, field scabious, hawkweed, and quaking grass, and is one of the few remaining areas in Nottinghamshire with limestone grassland. This circular route along the old railway lines takes visitors to a former colliery site, takes in the abundant wildlife of Coppy Wood, and the historic Skegby village. Look out for the Coal Garden at the centre that has artifacts from the local colliery, including pit wheels.
