Passing a few hundred metres north of Chybucca en route to Wadebridge when I noticed a Groundsearch Landrover and drill rig in a field on the west side of the road.
Maybe geo test for more bloody windmills? be odd drilling for minerals in that area....some lead at best, no value really

Chybucca spelled wrong indeed! Smile
