It is seen here as one of the turnings from a roundabout. The southern segment of Yeomans Road, behind us, was formerly part of the byway as well, but was incorporated into the public highway when the housing estate was built in the 1980s:

Map:

Commentary: Part tarmacked, part gravel road heading rurally north from edge of Muscliff housing estate. Previously also included Mill Road (South) before it was incorporated into the public highways of the estate - continuing straight path is eminently appreciable on the ground.
Here, it leaves Cadnam Way, one of the estate roads:

Map:
1:50,000 Modern Day Landranger(TM) Map © Crown Copyright
Commentary: One of the historical routes prior to the modern estate development. Originally extended west along modern-day Chesildene Drive, and east to Mill Road (now Landford Way).
SZ1095 : Throop: the original and modern-day Chesildene Drives diverge by Chris Downer
This is one of several straight routes of substantial length which survive from the days when Throop was rural. The large Throop/Muscliff housing estate was built in the late 1980s and incorporated some of the original routes into the modern roads. Chesildene Drive is one such - the public right of way has been truncated at each end where the public highway now takes over at each end.

SZ1095 : Throop: the sign for B.O.A.T. K25 is just along from Careys Road by Chris Downer
The definitive map and Ordnance Survey mapping mark the route of the byway as the course of Careys Road, which is also the most obvious on the ground.

However, peculiarly, the signage for it is a short distance south - the entrance to Careys Road can be seen in the distance here.

The picture below shows the signposted route, which does arrive on Careys Road a bit further along.
