Newark to Cotham Cycle Route


Newark to Cotham Cycle Route

Distance: 5 miles (8 km)

The Newark to Bottesford railway was open to passenger traffic between 1878 and 1955, with Cotham station opening in 1879. The line offered a route to Nottingham and Leicester and at one time trains ran directly to Northampton. The local gypsum industry helped to keep the line open for freight traffic and the occasional diverted passenger train until the 1980s and indeed the Royal Train passed through in April 1984.

The route is now open to cyclists, and offers picturesque views and a peaceful scenic ride between Newark and Cotham. It's a great Nottinghamshire ride for any cyclist, whether you are cycling alone or with friends or family.
