  1. Query from Mark Bowkowski about a reference to Iles Lane mentioned in a 1933 motor magazine.  http://www.motorsportmagazine.com/archive/article/january-1933/6/london-gloucester-trial
    Answer: Iles Lane is now called Hampton Lane, leaving the A419 southwards and passing Iles Mill. It is just a rough footpath as it climbs first over the railway line and then up the hill. The last part is a narrow tarmac road leading to the hamlet of Hyde.  These two pictures show the same part of Iles Lane near the top, so in Hyde rather than Chalford.
