This short yet steep byway climbs upwards from the junction between South Road and another unnamed country road (the byway itself appears to be unnamed, so if you know of the correct name please let us know!). Passing through a copse, inside which headroom is a little restricted in places, the green lane steeply climbs the side of Netherley Down on a surface of gravel and chalky earth.

On cresting the top of the hill this short byway turns to the west and passes along a field boundary, offering pleasant views southwards towards Rowlands Castle and the south coast, and it soon ends just east of Blendworth, 166' higher than when it started, and forming the eastern spur of a crossroads between New Barn Farm Lane, Rowlands Castle Road and Woodhouse Lane. Worth a visit if you're passing for sure, but too short to go out of your way for.

To Hampshire County Council this is Byway Horndean 51.
