Sturton le Steeple - Clarborough Nature Reserve - North Leverton Walk


We start by the church at the little Nottinghamshire village of Sturton le Steeple, which strangely enough, doesn't have a steeple. We walk very steadily up to Sturton High House Farm. At 67m, this isn't the highest ground in the area, but still gives long views all around.

Next, we descend into a shallow, wooded valley, which is home to the Clarborough Nature Reserve.  You are free to have a wander around the reserve. Our next port of call is the excellent Leverton Windmill. This is a working windmill, though opening hours are quite limited. It is open 'some' Sunday afternoons 2 - 5pm and by appointment. (Please ring 01427-880573 before visiting).

From the windmill, we soon enter the village of North Leverton with Habblesthorpe. According to the <i>Guinness Book of Records</i>, this is the longest place name in England. It's a pretty little place and you would be forgiven for stopping off at the local pub, The Royal Oak, for refreshment. The way back now is via the village church (where your humble contributor tied the knot) and then over fields to Sturton le Steeple. For those preferring refreshment post- rather than mid-walk, you'll find another excellent pub, The Reindeer Inn.

Dog-owners, please note the presence of cows and some awkward stiles between North Leverton and Sturton le Steeple. Also, dogs must be kept on a lead if visiting Clarborough Nature Reserve.
