This pleasant yet incredibly short byway technically carries on north of our starting point, but since that portion of it is a dead end (it turns into a bridleway and is as such off limits to motorised vehicles) we are not going to include it in this article.

Starting at the northern-most point of the greenlane, this trail starts opposite to a farm yard and involved leaving the tarmac to the left on a sharp bend up a grassy bank onto the lane itself. Once there, the byway heads in a southerly direction along a field boundary. The unrutted surface is a mix of earth, grass and gravel and the hedges are well cut back, and as such it is very easy going.

The lane ends almost as soon as it begins back on the tarmac just west of Sladen Corner. There's really not much to recommend this lane in isolation, but when driving other lanes in the area, and you happen to be in the area, why not give it a go. At least it gets you off the tarmac!
