About this book

The English countryside was once traversed by a network of green lanes, in use from prehistoric times. They were the routes for Roman legions, medieval travellers, tradesmen, drovers, and miners. Englanders value the lanes for recreational use, yet they also have great cultural and historical value: their contours, surfaces and routes reflect the goods and people that used them. This book explores the history and present state of the remaining network of green lanes. Their future in a beseiged landscape is considered on a local and national basis, and the opinions of conflicting user groups and county councils are discussed.
