Brackenfield Heritage Trail

  • The Brackenfield Heritage Trail is currently being developed, so look out for new information appearing on the following pages.

    The plan is to link each page to a QR plaque on the Trail so that people can access the information as they walk around.

    The Route

    This trail is a fascinating 8k/5-mile, circular walk, which takes in some of Brackenfield's most scenic views, monuments and historic sites. It starts outside Brackenfield Church Hall (DE55 6AQ), follows paths up to Highoredish viewpoint, via Trinity Chapel, before descending to Berridge Lane Nature Reserve and returning past Clattercotes Farm, Woolley, Ogston New Road, Brackenfield Church and Millers Lane.

    There is a shorter 4k/2.5-mile route returning to the Green from Highoredish via The Griffs and Carr Lane. An accessible circuit round The Green takes in two Points of Interest and an area of woodland.]

    You are advised to use the directions below in conjunction with Ordnance Survey maps: OS 269 Explorer (Chesterfield and Alfreton) or OS 119 Landranger 


    From mid-March to mid-April draft QR plaques will be in place. The Trail Team would love your feedback. (What do you think of the content and design? Is the text clear and easy to understand? Did you know what to do? Are the  instructions clear? Any mistakes? What did you particularly like about the Trail?) Please snd your comments to
