Three Points Lane
Three Points Lane
This view looking south is of a section of Three Points Lane between Botolph Claydon behind the camera, and Runt's Wood that is at the end of this straight stretch of lane.

Three Points Lane, which is a bridleway for most of its length, is a curiously roundabout thoroughfare changing direction several times so as to resemble the three sides of a square, hence no doubt its name. The lane is an ancient track well articulated in mid-seventeenth century maps, provided both a division between parishes, and an access route to grazing on both sides. It appears on Jefferys County Map of 1770.

Starting on the C road to Claydon 400m west of Botolph Claydon, it runs south, as in this picture, to Runt's Wood, then south-west alongside the wood and across Finemere Hill, then west towards Finemerehill House. Here it crosses a north-south bridleway at its highest point, 129m, continues west still as a bridleway, and then meanders northwards alongside Sheephouse Wood to Knowlhill Farm. From the farm it is a dead-straight farm road, see SP7023 : Three Points Lane near Middle Claydon, running north-east back to the same C road, but now 2km west of Botolph Claydon. The total distance is 6.2km.
