You might well laugh but there are quite a few photos of the Pembroke area published in tourist brochures & WDA leaflets which contained a fake / stuffed sheep (not that you could tell when we were shown the pictures at a camera club meeting). The photographer apparently used to carry it around with him and became a bit of a trademark of his. If I get some time later on I'll see if I can track down some of the photos which contains said fake sheep...

The weir is the other way. You may well encounter the farmer, he seems to spend a lot of time around there. Spring is the best time to get around, the terrain is horrendously overgrown, but visually I prefer it with the foliage and nettles. Wellies mandatory.

Another nice spot on Swarland Burn is NU 154 019, just downstream of where the footpath crosses the burn, here Parking at Old Swarland in a tight little layby opposite Old Swarland Hall.

Thats a nice trademark.....I used to know an engineering draughtsman who would draw a little mouse on all his general arrangement drawings.....it was always tricky to find it but it was always there.
