Thanks everybody for your comments, but, to me, none of them really seem to
cover the situation, although stilts=yes seems to come closest, although it
also sounds rather strange!

Going back to my OP, I notice that I mentioned tagging the area as level=1,
thinking about it, maybe that should be layer=1?

Thanks

Graeme
