The Trent Rivers Trust (TRT) is working with partners throughout the Trent to bring about the Trent Valley Way (TVW), a way-marked walking route, extending to 170 miles from its source near Stoke on Trent to the Humber.

Already established for 84 miles through Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, the Trent Valley Way is a long distance footpath along the Trent Valley

The TVW connects cities, towns and villages, wildlife and history, enhancing people’s well-being, linking communities, attracting visitors and contributing to local economies. It links the cities and towns which have built their industry and heritage on the River Trent, including Stoke, Rugeley, Burton-upon Trent, Nottingham, Newark, Gainsborough and Scunthorpe and passes through six counties.

The route from Shardlow to the Humber Estuary is shown on the relevant OS 1:50 maps. The lower lengths of this section downstream of Newark are way marked.

TRT is currently working on a new 32 mile long section between Rugeley and Shardlow which it is hoped will open in 2020. This work is being part funded by the Heritage (Lottery) Fund as part of the Transforming the Trent Valley Landscape Partnership project (TTTV project area).

The length upstream of Rugeley in Staffordshire is just a provisional line on a map at the moment. We hope to be able to develop and promote it in the long term, dependant on future funding.

Below are A4 pdfs of OS maps for the different lengths outside of the TTTV project area. The maps for the TVW between Colwich (Staffordshire) and Shardlow (Derbyshire) are available on the TTTV page.
