Early Bank Road

This so-called "road" leads from Matley Lane at Newton over the side of Matley Moor through Early Bank Wood and comes out at the top of Hough Hill Lane in Stalybridge.

"Unsuitable for Motor Vehicles" it says, but that doesn't stop certain motor-cyclists and drivers of 4WD vehicles from using it.

In fact I was taken over it in a Land Rover last April and you can get a taste of it (not the worst) on an unintentional video I recorded at the time and published on Ackworth born, gone West.

That "road" looks so very inviting. I'd be tempted to try it with a car. Oh dear! HA

I can understand why motor vehicles take this road inspite of the warning! It looks so charming! Have a great week.

It's a beautif little lane, but the ruts and hole further up take some getting over. I remember taking you along this lane.. ha! I drove it last Thursday and it's very muddy and the ruts are deeper still because of the work being done in that area from the near by golf club.
I did see quite a few rabbits in the fields, and a Kestral hunting over the gorse bushes.

As for cars driving it... well I've had to drag 3 out so far, and the local farmer as done so many times
