Teversal Trails (part of the Ashfield Trails Network)

teversal trails in winter

  • a circular route on former railway lines on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border
  • two sites of special scientific interest (SSSIs) and five sites of importance for nature conservation
  • ample free parking
  • visitor centre open every day except Mondays between 9am and 2pm (subject to volunteer availability, please check before travelling)
  • dogs welcome on a lead or under close control.

Since the final railway closure in 1978, the expansion of nature on the trails has come to support a mosaic of habitats including calcareous grassland communities. This grassland is among the few remaining areas of limestone grassland in Nottinghamshire and is of regional importance.

On a trip to Teversal Trails:

  • observe the species present including tor grass, yellow oat grass, field scabious, hawkweed and quaking grass
  • drop into the visitor centre for advice on routes and refreshments.
