Clive

Check ALL the balance weights on the rear wheel - sometimes they are stuck onto the inside of the rim & can catch the tip of the bolt on bottom of wishbone as the wheel rotates.

try gently resting your foot on the brake while making the noise, it it goes away its brake related, if it doesn't then it isn't

Drive shafts are a case of grabbing hold of the shaft by the joint and seeing how much play there is in it.
