We all have different views on what makes the perfect Greenlane, some like them open and scenic whilst others prefer deep rutted technical lanes. One thing is for sure id that Cornwall and Devon have a plethora of Lane types that suit everyone’s tastes.
Last week Greenlaners Southwest (G.L.S.W) visited a byway in Looe, no mans land and this lane is very badly rutted out due to water washing off the road, its a tight scratchy lane, even this time of year.  This lane is possible in non lifted vehicles…

When it comes to driving a Green lane, Byway or Green Road as they are now known among certain groups, some prefer a gentle traverse through the countryside along well maintained routes and then there are Cornish lanes!
This well rutted lane takes a lot of water flow from the main road during winter months which washes out the center of the lane. To the left and right are some uneven tracks, just about wide enough to drive, get it wrong though and you will end up on your side and spooling your winch out.

Watch this Jimny as it tackles this green lane in ‘No Mans Land’ near Looe.
