If the sign is anything to go by they're near Queen Mary's Place, Roehampton, which is a new developement in the grounds of a grade 1 listed building (on which I thought you could not build or alter).

BTW Mark why did you take a photo of both sides of the same sign?

Yep took a photo of both sides of the sign....the road is in Barnes. It is a tarmac road albeit in a bad state.

The closest lanes we have in London (well from me anyway) are in Surrey...great days riding!!

My guess would be Scarth Road, unmade-up road parallel to Vine Road or St Mary's Grove, right on the border with Putney, round the corner from where Marc Bolan was killed.

PS Nothing wrong with cycling, especially in Barnes!

Perhaps it is a byeway not a byway as it is about to be down graded to a bridleway, hence byebyeway.
