We have gone down the workman stairs from one side and went up from another.

This was what we saw, were we a bit too high up and close to the catchwater? 

Is there anyone who has been there to give us some hints?

The vegetation differs, yours looks like PB217 of which I have been there some days ago. That one is close to the catchwater, we reached it by passing a simple tomb ...

According to my GPS record, this should be PB218 which almost matches the position of the yellow marker on the above map. There is a lot of rubbish around PB218 as it's really close to the catchwater, saying about 5m below the catchwater.

Just checked your coordinates, it's in the ENE of the marker stone, while we had searched the area according to the arrow of the direction shown by the marker stone, i.e., somewhat NW of it cheeky

Yes I have recorded the slab but didn't go down by the workman stairs next to it. I just followed the ridge pattern to search the PB~

If it's the location you stated, it's so close to the path that you wouldn't need the access from the workman stairs. Hope I will have the chance to visit that area soon.

Yes forget about the stairs it's right on the ridge :)
