A weird one this: it is not subject to a TRO (certainly not the BOAT section, anyway) but even so the UCR section at the far western end is protected by a locked gate. It may be that the UCR never held vehicular rights and as such we have no right of access, or it may be that the land owner simply doesn't like 'intruders', but pending further investigation this byway is essentially a dead end and closed to traffic.

To Hampshire County Council these are Byways 16 & 37, combined here for convenience.

Are you sure that URL is right? Doesn't work for me.

Curious... perhaps try and and, if you have time, let me know if it works? Thanks Hugh!
