This thread will detail Byways & UCRs etc in the area covered by OS Explorer Map 144 (http://leisure.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/leisure/ItemDetails.jsp?item=os_explorer_144)

The intention is to Waypoint and photograph each end of a lane.

Where possibly the photos will be GeoTagged (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geotag)
and when hosted on Zooomr (http://www.zooomr.com/)
will be available with the

UKGSerByway (http://beta.zooomr.com/search/photos/?q=UKGSerByway)

tag for searching purposes.

When hosted on Zooomr you can click on the image for different/larger sizes and also to see a "mini-map" of the GeoTag.

No way through those for the GSA so I'm having to stick to the narrow bit on the right.

Lots of trees, bushes and potholes to contend with.

Oops - got a bit snagged by the bush on the right and found I couldn't reach the ground on the left.

A bit of a forgotten byway, tricky to get onto this end since it is on a dual-carriageway. The other end leads onto a short UCR currently 4x4 restricted by a locked gate but with an additional gate with a large enough gap for a GS to get through. Probably not for the first-timer due to the large rabbit population digging holes and one section of the track has a large fallen tree across it - again with enough gap for a GS to get around slowly.

Looks innocent enough, but leads to the ruts of Doom!

The tracklog shows this section to be 0.5 miles long and we averaged 5mph (previous section was about 1 mile long and we averaged 18mph).

Not recommened for a novice. In fact in damp weather not recommended at all :eek:

Summary so far...

Clive, don't suppose you know the height restrictions on some of those lanes do you?
The ones north of Basingstoke across to Whitchurch have had heavy use by the 4x4's and have seen a few areas where they have decided to use the ground around them as a play ground, so not in keeping with the rules etc, but we like the ones over that way as close to us, you seem to have missed a few from Ramsdell, or is it just your map not showing them too well, some of them are the tree routes from hell :thumb
Will need to get my maps out and start marking these off as good for the landy or not ;)

Difficult to say about the height - some where I have mentioned fallen trees etc you wouldn't be able to get a 4x4 down - but generally the others will be ok - when riding there are always thin branches & brambles to duck and some branches might be a problem for a windscreen but I guess you pack a saw :nenau
There are a couple South of Ramsdell I've yet to document - can't see any others near there (on OS 144 anyway).
We saw a couple of illegal mini-motocross tracks but didn't have time to stop and play :augie
Post up further info/photos you collect - I'm sure some of the tracks characteristics change a lot throughout the year :thumb2

a bit of height and width restriction :)

Luckily someone has hacked a bike sized hole either side of the obstruction, but if you go along there in your 4x4 take a chainsaw and sort it out :thumb2

Hi CLive,

If I click on the picture it says that the page cannot be found...
How can I get the waypoints?

Thanks

I host the photos on Zoomr - they have moved to a new "version" several weeks ago and have hit various problems. The Photos still appear in the posts on this thread but everything else (i.e. the clicking, upload, editing of them etc) is a bit fecked at present :D

The Waypoints are available as a Mapsource file on this post (http://www.ukgser.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1017571&postcount=159)

If you don't have Mapsource then just look at the title of the Photo on a post which I have labelled as the OS Grid Reference.

Yes, it does take a surprising amount of time to study the OS maps, find the lanes, ride and photo/document them etc but it gets me out in the open air from time to time, so I enjoy it :)

Hopefully others find the info useful and it may encourage a few others to get their GS out in the dirty bits :D

I'm planning a "Waypoint Treasure Hunt" based around the lanes on OS Explorer 144 map in the not too distant future :thumb

Thanks to you Clive, I've been inspired & bought the 144 map.
I don't have GPS or any of that gubbins, so I'm going to have to try and work out all the routes you've done and plot them on the map with the help of my daughters coulouring pencils.

Well, the textual versions of the latest waypoint file are...


I'm going to show myself up here, big time:o

The only way I know how to use any map is to use the numbers down each side of the map. I find number 71 along the bottom & follow it up until it reaches the side number 40 & then I know I'm in Alton.

Shall I get my dunce hat on now:nenau :confused: :mad:

So how do I use these figures with just the map?

Sorry to be so dense.

Take a look at this (http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/gi/nationalgrid/nghelp1.html) which will guide you to this PDF file (http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/gi/nationalgrid/nationalgrid.pdf) which will hopefully explain it.

Unless you have a very small ruler only the first 3 numbers of each set of 5 numbers of the waypoints above are useful on a paper map

e.g.
SU 41071 59243 => SU 410 592

SU 41071

The SU bit gets you to an area 100km by 100km

The 41 bit gets you to an area 1km by 1km

The 071 bit gets you to an area 1metre by 1 metre i.e. 71 metres to the right of where easting grid box 41 starts IYSWIM

Mapsource works down to this level of accuracy but the GPS isn't accurate to that level anyway :)

Cool!
So I was on the case in the first place but didn't realise that some of the numbers help divide the initial squares for greater accuracy.
Now I also understand the significance of 'SU'

Many thanks for clearing the waters:thumb2

What I use is a Post-it note sized square of paper marked (by using the grid 10ths lines along the bottom and sides of the map) with (what becomes) 0,0 in the top right hand corner of the paper square and labelled left to right with 9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 and bottom to top with 9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 - then use the 0,0 corner to point at a place on the map - it is then easy to read off the "10th" i.e. the 3rd digit of each group of 3 digits.

Nice tip.
I can see an evening of spreading the map over the dining room table and working my way though your list.

If it wasn't for your time and effort, I would't have known about all these lanes that are, as near as damn it, in my back garden.

You are rightly getting a lot of thanks and support for the work you've done. I've found lanes that I must have ridden past 100 times without realising they were byways - a whole new world is opening up.

We won't mention the puddle I dropped it in near five lanes end, and the fact that the wife had to hose me down afterward though OK? And no,no pictures available of my hosing the wife down....

Thanks again. I definitely owe you a pint.

A fairly short byway leading to another byway (http://www.ukgser.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1026440&postcount=176).
Very overgrown and narrow in places.
Probably not for the novice and very difficult for a 4x4 :eek:

First few hundred yards are ok, then becomes rutted and soft going.
OS map shows it as Byway from SU607554 for about 1/2 its length then becoming a RUPP.
Byway signs present from SU607554 end but no obvious "Restricted Byway" signs seen - at the other end is a wooden "Right of Way" signpost, so exact legal status unknown :nenau

Becomes fairly deeply rutted on both sides with a slippy (after recent rain) middle section :rolleyes: around SU614550

Start off as a wide ruts dirt track

which becomes more rutted and slippy when wet, watch out for large brambles catching on and twisting the handlebars :rolleyes:

leads to a tricky (when wet) downhill section through the trees, some flint, stones, tree roots and some sections of slight washout.
One of my favourite places for a break.

Out of the woods, both sides of the track are firm, but overgrown at this time of year - the grassy middle section is flat(ish) but slippy in places.

If I click on the picture it says that the page cannot be found...

Zooomr seem to have fixed this now.

Clive, worth pointing out, although you may not have seen it, if you ride SU590561 the other way, as you enter the woods the track splits, you have to take the left hand one to stay on the lane, the other is not too ncie if I remember right and goes nowehere :thumb

These are excellent lanes for blackberries later in the year :)

Not had a chance to get to the tree down yet, but the Devils highway in Mortimer is now passable if anyone else uses this as a short cut, not down to me though, we would have done a better job.

Experimenting with the the larger size photos as I have noticed that Zooomr doesn't appear to allow you to view the large size when you click on the medium size ones I was using in the posts :nenau

Fantastc work Clive.

I've just been thinking about maybe trying some light offroad stuff, never haveing done any before, and this is just what I needed.

I may have a play on some of the easier routes when the weather sorts itself out - which wil probably be next year (April onwards).

Thanks again, and the time and effort is much appreciated.

Cheers
