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, it will be 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 will link 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.

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 funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the Transforming the Trent Valley Landscape Partnership project.
