Just a reminder , if anyone decides to use the solar noon shadow method to find true south then make sure you are as accurate as you can with your solar noon timing, levelling and measuring
Check wooden dowel is standing 90 deg on all directions NSEW
Mark line on ground in centre of shadow at exactly solar noon
Mark line on ground in centre of shadow as accurately as possible

The more care you take with these steps , the closer you will be to True South and therefore ensure a good starting point for polar aligning your mount.
