The imaginatively titled 'Green Lane' (must've taken them all night to come up with that one...) starts by leaving Hook Road near the pleasant Street End Copse, which contains Readen Pond. Picnic, anyone? (Clear up after you!).

On a surface of lightly rutted, compacted earth it is very easy going indeed, if a little bumpy in places, and there is no encroaching foliage whatsoever to pose a threat to the paintwork, so Discovery/Range Rover owners can revel in the chance to get some mud under their wheels!

Heading southwest, on passing the impressive farm house of Runten's Farm the surface of the byway has been covered in gravel to serve as a driveway. This serves to almost halve the length of unmetalled byway available to us and hence the underwhelming score of 2 for this short green lane. We finish up by emerging from the driveway onto the junction between Post Horn Lane and Ridge Lane. Not really worth the investment of time in visiting unless you happen to be passing.

To Hampshire County Council this is Byway 18.
