Good grief are they planning on putting an A road through there, that's as wide as any greenlane I've seen!

They are quite wide i have to say at least on this lane... and as high up as you can be in the hills above oldham...they flood a little in places when its wet thou but generally just dry as a bone

Dont really tax the 4WD much thou but the suspension gets a bit of a rattling

Nice clean motor by the way. Wish mine looked that good, trouble is if you greenlane down here they tend to get scratched as well!

Hi Tom,

to be fair i am unsure if its near those places as i am fairly new to Oldham..

I know it as Lark Hill at the back of Dobcross, not far from the Saddleworth hotel...
