If it's any help, I think the photo was taken around midday looking due east down the street - the shadows of the buildings are on the right hand side of the road at a right angle to the road, so that side is to the south, and very short.

Wow- very scientific :o :o

And...the majority of churches are built east/west....(Usually but there are exceptions but let's hope this is not one of them) 

The west usually being the elaborate main door - and the east being where the pulpit and altar is.

There doesn't appear to be a rule as to where the spire goes.


So - if the road is going west to east... then we are looking for a church that sort of runs parallel to it also going west/east... (in theory!)

If that is the case then that other little tower probably isn't at the other end of the church from the steeple.?

Could very well be a park Gaffy - lots of them as well as churches in London. ;)

Yes, but in London if you assume a spire top left and park in the background, that narrows the field???

Possibly. Depends if it is a park, an estate of some sort or something else. I think difficult to judge the distances and relationships of the objects on the background, or even identify what many of them are due to not being in focus and maybe due to depth of field and perspective distortion where it is is difficult to determine the relative distances between objects when they are so far away. Bit like viewing a scene through binoculars - it gets distorted.
