Holloway Lane

image

This lovely lane is closed to motorised traffic (except for access) and it is the second time I have cycled it. Both times were unintentional: The first time I had not realised it would have sand and horse dung on it in many places, and this time I hadn’t realised I was following my “old” route map. After the first experience (when the weather was wetter than this time) I created a second route which bypassed this on the main roads.

I’m glad to have experienced it in better weather, and on my gravel touring bicycle rather than my thin-wheeled road bike. There is walk over at Pete’s Walks that describes a walk that takes in part of this road, and there are photos of the beautiful surrounding countryside on the page. I didn’t linger to take any myself.

Holloway Road is in Buckinghamshire, in the Chiltern District, and just outside the town of Chenies.  At the bottom of the lane (farthest from Chenies) where I entered, there is a ford crossing the River Chess, but there is also a wooden bridge for pedestrians.
