No, if you use the googlemap link and select satelite image then take your bearings from the cemetary heading east towards Landican Lane as it runs up from Woodchurch Road on the M53 side. There's a clump of treees - if you know the area well you'll know them as the four oaks. Look in the file dthere on the satelite image, at high resolution and see for yourself. The four oaks are at the bend in the original Landican Lane before the road was re-routed in the late 60's for the construction of the motorway.

Oh yeah for the tractor driving phalinmegob, the plough marks run transversely to the 'possible' crop marks, and are a different colour. The field in question isn't flat so some of the marks may simply show driainage around the elevations.

Google doesn't let you save images from the satelite.
BTW I'm quite familiar with tractors in the fields around Landican. I grew up in the area adjacent to the farmland in question and have lived there for over fifty years. The original route of Landican Lane is visible as a 'crop mark' just opposite the four oaks which run north west at about 45 degrees from the new road. If you follow the 'possible' crop marks in the fields from the four oaks to the old Landican Lane which runs as along the back of the cemetary towards the new Arrowe Park traffic lights - going many years ago to Woodchurch parish church: its visible as a tree line on the satelite image forming a boundary between your amusing little kiddes drawing cemetary layout and the fileds. At higheest resolutuion some of the 'marks' at that margin are hexagonal. If you can acces sthe google image just scroll the resolution up.

No not there, go towards Woodchurch Road and follow Landican Lane up, its east of the lane towards the cemetary - well done on getting the image.
