Redgate Mill Lane

See the video/comment on youtube.

Redgate Mill Lane is 647 meters long (0.4 miles) which took me 6.32 minutes to ride, at an average speed of 3.8 mph. It is a BOAT (byway open to all traffic). You can expect to find:

  1. A non tarmac surface
  2. Deep Ruts
  3. Width Restriction (probably not for 4x4 vehicles)
Council notes:

Council say:

Very badly gullied and overgrown, probably impassable to four wheel drive vehicles and trail bikes.

My description:

Impassible to 4x4 vehicles.

Very very tough, my nemesis.

Try going up in the wet/snow!

Great fun, experienced riders only.

Here is a good video showing why it's so tough:

This byway is recommended.

 I rode this on 26/06/13 from the bottom up. Met a group of 4 green laners from Orpington way at the bottom end who had come all the way to ride the area. Made me appreciate how good the area is for green lanes. Thanks Sven for your website. Without it I would never have dipped my toe into the world of off road.

 did this lane in june 17.
The council have improved the mud bath at the top and repaired the entrance at the lower end. The middle section with all the rocks have been left alone. Drove from the bottom up in a modified Suzuki jimnny. On youtube under "Crowborough Byways 2017"
