Can you show us a better

Can you show us a better photo? Twisted leaves are not particularly diagnostic. With grasses, you need to look at the join between the leaf and the stem where there is a structure called the ligule that is important. THen the colour of the leaf, veination, width, ridges and so on. If you can show close-ups of any of this it might be possible to give you a name.

To Jonathan - Thank you for your reply. When I return to that location again (probably quite soon) I will try and find out the points you suggested.
I am sorry I've taken such a long time to send you my thanks : I've only just found out how to do this!
Once again many thanks,
