This straightforward byway leaves Honey Lane opposite Albury Farm, on an easterly track. The surface is for the most part solid, unrutted mud and leaf mould, changing later to what looks like a sandy loam. As such it's a pretty well drained green lane and a very easy drive.

Winding through pleasant woodland, this byway crosses a bridge over a small stream and then continues, paralleling the southern boundary of Blackmoor Golf Club whilst open fields pass behind the trees on the southern side of the lane. It's soon over, however, and on passing the 9th hole of the golf club the green lane returns to a metalled surface as it ends in a housing estate in Bordon.

Worth a drive if you're passing, but not worth going out of your way for. The course of a Roman road crosses this byway at its western end. There's nothing of it to see above ground.

A video by YouTuber 'Jamie Love' is embedded below and sheds more light on the byway.

This is Hampshire County Council's Byway 69, dude!
