Could be the start of a wheel bearing packing in

I doubt it tbh, wheel bearings tend to tap or knock when they start going (more so under steering!).

As Jack sed sounds more like a seal.

Simple answer is, the speed limits 70mph. Dont drive at 80 and you'll never hear the noise!

Without sounding nasty you must take forever to get anywhere. I agree with not going 85+ but 80 in my opinion is fine in the right conditions.

I'd rather take a bit longer to get somewhere in this world than arrive 50 years early in the next.
