Welcome to the Peak District Green Lanes Alliance (PDGLA). We believe that green lanes should be for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and carriage drivers.

At present offroad 4x4s and motor bikes can legally use many green lanes, even if the surface is peat or turf and easily rutted and damaged.

Ancient byways are being destroyed by offroading throughout the Peak District, including inside the Peak District National Park.

The Peak Park and the highway authorities have the power to stop the destruction. They need support, encouragement and, where necessary, pressure from the public to help them do so.
