There are not so many off road options these days and green lanes are reducing.  Bridleways are normally (not always) non motorised.

The are many posts all over GWOA for previous trips and suggestion.  I am just adding a very small one here which I came across this weekend:

Near Brockenborough, Tetbury.  Get there from the B4040.

Grid Ref:  51.61107, -2.13124

Its a narrow wooded track to a ford crossing the Tetbury Avon.  Its a double crossing with a shallow ridge in the middle but the depth is a good 2 feet (in old money). There is space to turn around at the ford!  And a footpath the the other side.

I was out for the day not for off roading, so I didn't go through :(  I am sure it would have been fine, but my rule of 4x4 is have a backup plan (e.g. winch or another car).

Theres a great Pizza-Pub-Restaurant, the Cat and Custard, in Shipton Moyne up the road,

Anyone know it, or suggest other green lanes, anywhere?

Just back from a very enjoyable weekend with Protrax in Wales. A worthwhile introduction.

You mean these folks: https://www.protraxoverlandadventures.co.uk/ 

Looks like some great variety and levels.  Thanks for the find.

That's it. Headed by the legendary Vince Cobley.
