    I lived around here all my life so know area well , yes alot of byways . Near hungerford is a village called inkpen and famous for combe gibbet a hanging post . But diversing the byway starts near marlborough and goes for miles not from Wiltshire into berkshire and into Surrey.

    I been thinking what's the biggest tyres (all terrains) I can go for without fouling arches or bodywork. Dont really want to do a lift . Known a few dobe lifts and after various parts failed... Uj's radius arms and other bushes , been also told the ride can go to pot so as a daily driver dont want to make too much worse .
