    It shows what happens when you stop motorised transport using the lanes tho.

    Had a dog walker thank one of our group the other week, apparently the lane only being 18" wide was making it difficult for them to walk through, so coming up to a group of Landies pushing their way through was a welcome sight.

    Enjoy the lanes, the ones I have driven recently are overgrown and the leaves are covering some quite thick branch growth. Not paint friendly or even in places bodywork, and not places I would lead a shiny down.

    Cheers

    Maybe we ought to charge the council for keeping the lanes clear? :D

    It not only affects us as 4x4 but horses,bikes & walkers.
    Wilts council are good for removing blockages but not bush cutting(unless you complain)
    I do say I’m using a horse carriages as they deem this to be more a pleasure than adventure

    2 trips out over the bank holiday with a small groups.
    1 loop around as far as Avebury stones
    1 loop out towards marlbough.
    Only the marlbough route had a bit of overgrowth where I was nice a asked if you wanted to avoid the gorse/sloe bushes. Most took the scratchy route.
    Only saw 2 enduro bikes & 2 LR overlanders over the 2 days. Plenty of walkers.
