This byway (part of the Oxdrove Way) is subject to a TRO. A real shame though, as along with Jennie Green LaneBullfield Lane and Rushmoor Lane this used to be a great little network of byways that we called the 'Rushmoor Pond Network'. It's gated off and is closed to vehicles until at least the 30th May 2013. What happens after that remains to be seen, but we shall keep our ear to the ground.

To Hampshire County Council this is Byway 20 and part of Byway 23, combined here for convenience.

Have just driven this lane, has been locked up until a few weeks ago, all the gates have been opened and TRO signs taken down. Jennie Green lane is the same.

This lane has been re-opened. All the gates were locked until a few weeks ago. TRO signs have now been taken down, jennie Green Lane is also open, not sure about the others in this little network.

Thanks for the update, Jack! We are most grateful. I've updated the post and will now have to drive it as we have never been able to gain access before. Review to follow...
