through the Looking-GLASS ... the Reference Library !

Welcome to the Green Lane Association reference web library. Unlike most libraries, you may shout and fidget if you wish !

This is an area intended to supply material (or links to it) which may be useful to GLASS members, and also others engaged in Rights of Way work. Some for the use of researchers, those engaged in defending the existing network, and those who wish to help with practical maintenance.

You might also find the Glossary useful.
