Default Greenlaning in Norfolk/Suffolk/Cambridgeshire

I live on the border between norfolk, suffolk and cambridgeshire and was wondering if anyone knows of any good greenlaning routes in that area or within reasonable travelling distance? Also if anyone knows of where I can get hold of any maps showing marked out routes that would be appreciated.

Not far from me!

There's a fairly long green lane just south east of Cambridge. Can't remember the exact location but I know it's a fair few Kms long and dead straight. Get yourself a pink map from OS and have a look I might be tempted to come with you

Have you been through the ford at Stocking Pelham?

No I havent been down that way. I have heard about the pedars way by that travels from Thetford in Norfolk right the way up to the North Norfolk Coast. Mates have told me it is a good route, bit of mud, ruts, fords etc.

Hi everyone,

I guess I must live somewhere nearby - just outside Cambridge. I'm still looking for some good lanes to try out - if you have any other suggestions let me know...

I'll have a look on my map for the lane you mention s/e of Cambridge..

The reason Norfolk council does not say that it is open to off road vehicles is that they are rather anal about the subject but if you take the time to look on an OS map they are shown as byways open to all vehicle. Many sections of the peddars way are ordinary roads so dont believe what you read on websites, get the facts from an OS map!

Hi folks,

I'm new to owning a Land Rover and this forum, but I saw this thread and since you all seem to be in the same area as me I thought I'd say hello.

It would be great to go green laning closer to home at least to get me acquanited with it all.

get the landranger series of OS maps. then check with the local council. speak to the officer in charge of the definitive map for the area.
the OS map is not always accurate.

The lane I'm thinking of runs parallel with the old A604 (don't know what the new # is) between Linton and Cambridge. Coming out of Haverhill, head towards Cambridge and you pass the village of Horseheath. Take the next right (after about 2km) and go along the lane for another 1.5km. The green lane starts on your left here, taking a straight line all the way to the edge of Cambridge, joining the road between Fulbourn and Addenbrooke's. Total distance is about 12km. A nice easy intro to green lanes (although I haven't been along it for a few years now).
