Surfaced paths are suitable for walkers and cyclists and waymarked trails make it easy to navigate around the site. A lovely place to walk, reflect, be creative and simply enjoy the beauty you walk among!
From the top of site you can look out over towards Hardwick Hall, Pleasley and the Derbyshire foothills, sometimes catching aglimpse of a buzzard as it wheels on the thermals.
With the aid of a pair of bincoulars on a clear day you can look across to the proud towers of Lincoln Cathderal.

Could I ask also about some of the technical details of planting up an area of industrial contamination? Much of tip was just tailings,spoil and slurry with no humus and no doubt a high acidity/alkalinity unsuited to sustaining organic growth.Think possibly treated filter bed waste was used for this? Either way,growth is resplendent nowadays for sure.I too would like to see the former photo's of the old tip as well.Any possibility,cheers.

Been across the old Sherwood tip today,the last time I walked cross here,it was indeed just that.Grey,unrelenting mud and spoil,and I had promised to walk across here when I had time,never seen such fantastic views,we are indeed very fortunate to have such wonderful areas for recreation in this area,Shirebrook also,the work which as been done and the value achieved to the locality is enormous.I will have to cross here again very soon.Highly impressed with these former tips and what has become of,living as I have in the shadow of them all my life,what a transformation.
