Green Laning in the Surrey Hills

Monday, August 30th, 2010

Today I took the Landrover and a friend from the village for a small green laning expedition. Guy has a Jeep, and was wondering what all the fuss was about – so I offered a few weeks ago to go out with him to see what it was like.

We did a few lanes – past Coldharbour cricket pitch towards Leith Hill Tower and then back to the road, Coldharbour to Wooton – a long and varied track with some awesome views of Dorking, and then we went to Ranmore and trundled gently down to the back of East Horsley.
That was three attractive and relatively straightforward runs – Guy got a chance to drive, and we had a very pleasant afternoon out in the sunshine. Not very muddy, and we met a small convoy of various Landrovers on the Leith Hill track. Plenty of walkers and some crazy cycle riders who whizzed past without warning.
