Farmland east of Haw Lane
The area in front of the camera looks a lot like good old 1990s set-aside. Could the track be the remains of a wartime military road? There was, after all, an RAF station in the next grid-square west: SU5477 : On the old airfield

While the relief here is very gentle, you are nonetheless moderately high up, with the 130m contour running nearby.

The evening sky (at about 8pm) is mildly spectacular, but it's worth reflecting that much of the cloud cover must be decayed vapour trails.
