The Trent Valley Way is a long distance walking route along the Trent Valley. This project will develop and promote the Trent Valley Way within the Transforming the Trent Valley Landscape Partnership Scheme area. The walking route will act as a spine along the river valley, connecting heritage, places and communities.
It will link up with other access routes (footpaths, cycle ways and the National Forest Way) and heritage projects. Along its length there will be a series of spurs and circular walking routes connecting to key cultural, industrial and natural heritage sites.
The Trent Valley Way follows Rights of Way. The long term maintenance will be the responsibility for the landowner under the guidance of the Rights of Way departments at Staffordshire and Derbyshire County Councils.
Trent Rivers Trust remains committed to promoting the entire Trent Valley Way including the area within the Transforming the Trent Valley Landscape Partnership Scheme area and upstream and downstream of it. Funding will be sought to continue to look for opportunities to further develop and promote it.
