Track near Khyber Pass, Buckholt
Track near Khyber Pass, Buckholt
This is a section of a track, which is not a public right of way, that runs in a roughly north-east direction from Little Buckholt Farm in the south to London Lodge on the A30 about 3km away. This view, looking north-east is about 1/2km from Little Buckholt Farm. From here the track rises gently to a dip in Broughton Down at a height of about 125m, known locally as Khyber Pass, and then descends quite steeply on the other side, hence the name.

This track was the subject of an unsuccessful application by a recreational off-road motoring organisation in May 1996 to have it declared a Byway Open to All Traffic. The record of Hampshire County Council's Rights of Way Panel LinkExternal link is interesting reading in the detailed history of the track that is uncovered.

Between Little Buckholt Farm and Khyber Pass the track also marks the western boundary of Buckholt civil parish, which is the smallest parish by population in the borough of Test Valley, with just 10 people.
