I could have got right up to this site had I been wearing suitable walking shoes or boots; the photo of Orton is therefore taken at some distance and I found it difficult to get a steady, shake free shot despite IS. I therefore increased the ISO speed and this has made for a rather grainy shot. It seemed like a fairly interesting site and I am a bit annoyed that I could not get in closer. I am sure someone else will have more luck.

Orton was originally an IBA landlord site which entered service on 15th October 1982. Channel 4 was available from the launch a few weeks later in November 1982.
