Not far from High Banks... took a little while to find the right path into this field, had to dodge a couple of electric fences on the way. It's in an area with roaming cows and the surrounding land had also been recently ploughed roughly, so the ground was hard-going...

The panels are on higher ground near to some gorse bushes (an obvious place for RA really!!)

Some of these were hidden so we replaced the turf. There are surely more under there, too. The bedrock is particularly fragile so I think it's best these are protected from hoofs etc...

We spotted the best panel just as we were leaving to move on to the next place... there are very good pick marks on it and even some small holes as if the tool slipped and hammered a few pecks by accident ;)

One panel overlooked the little watering hole - a spring or a quarry? wasn't clear.
