“- The footpath leading out of Retford towards Grove across the fields …. fantastic hedgerows that in spring are bursting with blackthorn blossom, swallows soaring and swooping across the fields in summer, blackberries and sloes in autumn and glorious sunsets over Retford from the top of Castle Hill.
– Rufford Park in the early evening when everyone else has gone home … especially on a crisp snowy, winter’s evening.
– Retford Market on a Saturday – wonderful cheese and olive stall, fish stalls, fruit & veg and lots of great tea shops nearby.
