Green Lane forms a 'c' shape with Beech Lane, very similar in form to the astrological constellation Gemini! A short, if very pleasing drive through open fields and Week Wood. It is a little tight with regards to undergrowth in places, especially where holly has grown a little too vigorously. The paintwork will squeal and complain, but it is never so tight as to present a huge problem. The going is firm too, and it is almost completely unrutted.

Green Lane starts life as a metalled country lane in Flexford. The tarmac soon ends and the lane follows field boundaries, with the open fields of Rickwood Farm to the south and dense woodland to the north. After around one kilometre, upon exiting Week Wood, Beech Lane joins from the north. At the junction between the two lanes, the best signpost ever can be found (see picture above left). If only life was always that simple!To make a good go of it, it's best to combine driving the two lanes, as individually they are too short to make it them worth driving separately. Otherwise Green Lane ends as it began, back on tarmac just east of Rickwood Farm.
