Definitely want to hunt down this spot. I asked the photographer on flickr where it was and he's given me some info to find it :-)

Right then, now this is definitely on the agenda for weds 9th April, I know that Ania and Gay are up for it. Open invitation for anyone else who'd like to tag along too..

It'll be an early start and a full day of shooting, probable pub lunch in Merrivale:

I've got all the aforementioned locations tagged in my GPS, so my plan of attack is:
  • Merrivale Standing Stones
  • Windy Post
  • Hound Tor
  • Wheel Betsy Pump House
+ possibly a quick scout at the old abandoned Merrivale quarry site too
