The lane runs past the Jolly Sailor and down to a dead end at Lands End hard, which is still in use as a launching site.
A few years ago the council put in some some sculpted oak benches in which make a nice picnic spot overlooking Bursledon pool. There's a set of scrubbing piles and the remains of an old marine railway.
Apparently the site dates back to Saxon times when there was a ferry across to Swanwick.
