Biography

Valerie Belsey gained her love of exploring country lanes from her father, a cyclist who thought nothing of cycling from London to Combe Martin and back for the weekend - a round trip of 395 miles. On a much more modest scale she managed an MSc Government project on green lanes in the 1980s, and later worked for Devon County Council as the only 'historic highway monuments surveyor' ever. She is an ardent enthusiast and archivist for our countryside. Her other books include Exploring Green Lanes: North and North-West Devon, The Green Lanes of England, Discovering Green Lanes, Exploring Green Lanes in the South Hams and Devcn Roads, Past and Present.
