Looking in a north-westerly direction from SK7730 : Footpath marker post in Stathern Wood
The Vale of Belvoir is a wide limestone valley with a heavy fertile clay soil. On average 10 miles wide, this flat farming area stretches about 30 miles from the Nottinghamshire Wolds towards Newark along the county boundaries between Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. It is bounded to the southeast by a conspicuous escarpment, the foot of which is the viewpoint of this photograph, and on the northwest by a more gradually sloping ridge beyond which is the Trent Valley. This view is looking right across the Vale from Stathern Wood towards the A46 and Nottingham. You can just make out the NE boundary of the Vale on the horizon.
