This map is fully interactive. Please zoom, scroll, or click a place-marker.

Welcome! This website contains over three hundred reviews of our experiences driving every byway, green lane, track and trail open to motorised vehicles in the south-eastern counties of Hampshire, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex and even a smattering of those in Kent. Since there is only so much information that can be gleaned from an Ordinance Survey map or Google Earth, this site serves to 'flesh out' the details for your perusal, delectation and inspiration, with an eye to getting you outdoors in nature and enjoying (and caring for) the gloriously beautiful English countryside!

How does this site work, then? Well:
  • the map above is fully interactive. You can scroll around, zoom in and out, and click on any marker in order to load the entry for that byway;
  • the tags on the right act as a filter (e.g. recommended country pubs);
  • the search box (top right) is self-explanatory.
A quick word on our ratings: we work on a scale of 0 to 5. Byways rated 0 are closed to motorised traffic (subject to a TRO, etc.) and have been included simply so that you may cross them off of your map and avoid wasting your time. Those rated 1 are either now metalled roads or so short as to be pointless. Those rated 5 are the very elite and simply must be visited!

Finally, we hope you find this website genuinely useful. When visiting the green lanes and byways, please do so in a conscientious and responsible manner and abide by our Green Lane Code. Also, we'd like to humbly request that if you find any errors or out-of-date information, have any feedback, or would simply like to ask any questions what-so-ever please don't hesitate to comment below the relevant articles, and please do get in touch via our Twitter. Enjoy!
