Despite it's classification as a UCR, this is just a metalled country road like any other and is closed except for access. Boring!

Epsom Downs Racecourse can be found at the southern end of the lane.

First TRO'd in 1922, long before anyone had thought of 4WD, because of the racing stables at the bottom, which used Chalk Lane to reach the downs.

Although shown as ORPA on the OS map, the OS doesn't specifically claim to mark UCRs: only publicly maintainable roads which may be of particular interest for recreational use.
