Farm track /footpath that provides off road access from Shuttlewood to Woodthorpe /Markham Vale /Seymour area

Footpath from Palterton to Hillstown, the best off road alternative to the fast road which runs parallel

The hollow of Church Lane between Shuttlewood Road, and Stanfree. Very muddy and rutty. A nice link from Stanfree to the Bolsover area but the lane is in very poor condition

Always a big puddle here, could do with a better surface as after heavy rain it's hard to get around it as it fills the lane

Ruts in bridleway making it hard to cycle

Entrance to Birch Hill Plantation, off Mansfield Road. Taken from Poulterwell Lane, that leads to Palterton.

Poulterwell Lane, where the water runs across the lane from Poulter well and forms the start of the river Poulter

Church Road Stanfree. Good surface here but gets very muddy and rutty further down towards Bolsover. Could be a good off road cycle path linking Stanfree with the edge of Bolsover if the surface was improved.

Church Road, otherwise known as Stanfree Lane, links Stanfree with Shuttlewood Road Bolsover, cutting out main roads through Shuttlewood.

Route signs at Hoodcroft access on Clowne Greenway. This turn off is the quickest access to Stanfree

Old path from Clowne Road to Church Road than runs alongside Hawke Brook, a lot more overgrown and disused than it was in the 80s!

Not suitable for cycling (at least not for a while) but there's an old footpath alongside Hawke Brook that's been used for generations to gain access from Clowne Road, to Church Road, although it's a lot less used these days than 30 years a ... [more]

Former Shuttlewood water treatment works. Possibly a way of forming a connection to the old Oxcroft Branch Line and then onto Seymour from the Oxcroft/Bolsover area

Site of former Shuttlewood water treatment works, all been flattened now, but the old track to the site remains, and could provide access to Mill Lane/ the former oxcroft disposal point site.

Old lane up to Bentinck Road. The terraced houses were built for Oxcroft Colliery, and the lane was used by the miners to get to work until the colliery closed in the 1970s.

Overgrown pathway on Church Road, flatter than the proper path which has deep ruts but needs some TLC to make it easier to bike on. Unfortunately this lane suffers due to motorbike use.
