A varied 3km running route

This interesting 3k route starts north of the car park and takes in the northern section of Chopwell Wood. You’ll get a glimpse of Chopwell’s industrial heritage as you pass the restored railway carriages and old stone railway bridge that runs over the old colliery line. A gentle climb takes you along the edge of the local golf course before you drop back down to join the old railway line.
