Hi

Not much in North Bucks, however, there's quite a few in South Northants. Total Off Road magazine did a road book of them. The journey distance is some 54 miles, not all green lanes you understand. It's an interesting drive that we've done as a whole and in sections.

What part of Bucks you in. We have an all marqyue meet the first monday of the month at the Woolpack in Buckingham, you'd be made welcome if you came along.

The lanes in Northants and Beds close for 6 months from the end of October, so we'll have to travel further afield. There's a TOR 70 miles road book laid out in the Didcot, Newbury, Wantage area, need OS 174, thinking of doing one weekend November time if the lanes stay open over the winter.

Stuart :D

i dont think there is hardly a lane open in bedfordshire

south beds & mid beds council have been axed & one council called central beds is in its place trying to get any details off them is hard work

Which road book are you refering too, the South Northants or the Didcot route?

I've also got them for Leistershire around Melton Mowbray, Pewsey and the Plaine, and "the Salisbury Plaine". Actually I got them all for the past 2 years but the rest are further afield and would be a long jaunt to do in a day.

Hope to see you at the Woolpack first Monday in November then, that'll be Monday the 2nd, 8 to 8.30 ish.

Cheers

Stuart
