Story

Some of the most iconic green lanes in the UK need your help!

Happy Valley
Carn March Arthur
The Wayfarer
Horseshoe Lane (The B*astard)

After the affects of weather, water erosion and the inconsiderate use of those who choose to act outside the green laning community's responsible usage mantra, considerable work is required on all these routes. GLASS have been working tirelessly over winter in discussions and planning meetings with local authorities, national parks and land owners. Now it's time for action!

GLASS are going to help fund these large projects which include:

• helicoptering hundreds of tons of stone to repair Happy Valley and Carn March Arthur

• bridge repairs, sleeper section maintenance, drainage improvement, signage and off-piste solutions on the Wayfarer

• signage and drainage improvement along the full length of Horseshoe

Most people within the laning community know these lanes, donate today to keep them on our maps and open for all!

You don't need to be a member, you just need to care about our vehicular rights of way!

We'll be dipping into our fighting fund, but the shortfall needs to be covered. We have numerous projects all over the UK, these are the big ones and we can't do it without your help!

    Horseshoe Lane (also known as The B*stard) project - Drainage issues have been highlighted by Natural Resources Wales who cannot access or fund the project in their remit. Work will be carried out to improve surface drainage along the whole length of the lane, this will prevent further water erosion going forward. A clean-up day will be organised to address a littering issue. Signage will be installed by Snowdonia National Park denoting the one way route along this iconic lane. Horseshoe Lane is currently one way, downhill!
