Synchro or clutch?

Hi folks, I'm a newby here having got my first Defender ('97 300TDI County 90 SW) last year. Prior to that I have had 2 Discoveries but there really is no comparison. Apart from my wife and dog my Defender is the love of my life! - I have to say that in case either ever read this thread.
I would appreciate some help and advice on the following: When changing gear I get a graunch as if the synchro is worn.If I slow the gear change and change at lower revs then it doesn't occur. So is it likely to be the gearbox or just the clutch?

Thanks in advance for any help.

It could be either really. If the clutch isn't fully disengaging it can have the same symptoms. Have you checked all the air is bled out of it?
