That church looks brick and flint which offers some geographical clue, albeit not particularly helpful. The size and windows should be distinctive to anyone who's been there.

Beyond that I'm struggling to recognise anything in the picture from the level of available detail.
The blue thing looks like shipping container but is surely too small. A building? A trailer? Looks like a yellow & white warning sign facing the car park, and maybe some manufacturer markings up at high level.
Portaloo? Pay & Display building for the car park?

I'm wondering if the church is on some kind of big country estate.

There's another building on the far left of the picture - difficult to tell what I'm looking at but appears to be the ridge and pitched roof of a building that adjoins some adjacent blocky structure (a tower?) . Looks almost like a 2nd church; some kind of gatehouse maybe.

I thinks its a shed, and it isn't a car park. although knowing what it isnt wont really help you

No just in a village

unrelated farm buildings, the tower is grain tower entry point.

The has the makings of a fun laden search, as there is still something in the picture no-one has commented on, that is the best clue to finding the road. The view is from almost at the top of a short sharp, but otherwise unremarkable climb, that we do relatively regularly, and regarded as the slightly easier route to reach this village.

Nothing really outstanding in picture unless you’ve been there. Sharp bends can be found in myriad of locations. Possible cycle track other side of hedge but may just be footpath.

Large white something just up and right from the blue hut.
Difficult to see it against the sky, but has a clear square shape where it part-obscures the tree - looks like a building rather than say, a silage heap under plastic.
Not sure any of this helps.

Blue container being used as a cafe in a carpark?

There's buildings on the left edge, with a low voltage power line(wooden poles) running towards them.
Green sign at the bend, temporary route marker for an event, or filming location.

L66 pylon!

I think that this weird thing is the weird thing that we are looking for, only I can't see what the weird thing IS! :wacko:

Bronze casting* atop a gatepost?

*Gargoyle, given the nearby "Church".

Sorry, that's not an L66. Looks like just a bog-standard L132 to me. Had it been L66, I agree it could have narrowed things down, but lines like the one in the picture are pretty much everywhere so not much help.

i'm seeing that as a Welsh dragon, probably wrong and even if correct helps very little.

Well Spotted Colin & Mr Uphill, a dragon it is.

I think it helps a lot.


No idea on pilons, but that seems to be leading you to completely wrong area geographically
