Quite a short green lane, this one, and it is also unnamed. We therefore called it South Lane, as it seems to be a logical progression of the country road of the same name. Starting at the northern end, just next to Woodcroft Crossing on the Portsmouth Main Line, the byway proceeds in a south-westerly direction from New Barn Road. The surface is pretty good, consisting of gravel and compacted earth, and the foliage on either side is kept well cut back due to the lane being used by farm machinery on a regular basis.

The byway soon crests a hill and at its zenith, on a good day, it's possible to see all the way down to the south coast (if you stand in the right place, that is!). On the way back down, via a random speed bump that has probably been installed to combat fly-tipping filth, the green lane ends all too soon on Chalton Lane just east of the hamlet of Chalton. 'Nuff said.

To Hampshire County Council this is Byway Horndean 23.
