The southern end of this short greenlane is approached by a very steep climb straight up a bank that can catch one unawares. It's very short however, and easy enough to climb if you're expecting it, and once you have done so the best part of this lane is already over!

Heading northwards following a field boundary and on a damp, lightly rutted earthen surface the hedgerows that line either side of the lane gradually close in until, just after the halfway point, the lane becomes so tight with overgrown foliage as to defy logic. Greenlaners can expect some significant scratches on their chosen vehicle, as hazel hedging on the northern side and holly and a barbed wire fence to the south all willfully leave their mark on the paintwork. The lane eventually emerges onto Smithy Lane.

Due to the fact this lane is so short, and the fact that T-Cut almost certainly have shares in the lane, make it very hard to recommend. If it were cleared it'd be worth a go tho, hence it scores a two.
