A difficult one. Lots of old graveyards like that around - is it outside Hilltown on the way to Spelga? (Stab in the dark)

A good question!
I haven't even got time to look at my bike since July with the wee one. But if I can get the Mother-In-Law to mind her, and bring Nicola along, I could get planning for a Co. Down one :geek:

Couple more to add to this post,

Davagh forest, Co Tyrone. A nice tucked away spot with plenty of space to park up, also a wee river running through , plenty of Brown Trout, but small.
