Green lanes

Narrow country road surround by fields and deciduous woodland

Green lanes are historic tracks and routes used by walkers, cyclists, horse riders and motor vehicles. They are an important part of access - a story of people and industry, wildlife and habitats, links to communities, beautiful views, tranquility and inspiration for the benefit of all. They are our trackways across the national park.

These multi-user routes vary in character from walled lanes to moorland trails. They can be grassy, stone surfaced, or tarmacked and may form part of a former trade route. They often connect closely with their surroundings with biodiversity-rich verges. Some may have vehicle rights, others not.
