Where Am I? No 12
« on: Tuesday 07 April 15 09:32 BST (UK) »
Whoops, posted out of order.  ::)

This one isn't so grand, but it's the same type of photo, size etc as the other photos so you never know there may be a connection and someone might come across it.

I don't think this one will be identifiable, it's too "ordinary" for want of a better word, but I'll bump it up anyway.

I am thinking southern counties - Kent or some such .... :-\

You never know, it may still be there as it's a manageable size and not as costly to maintain. It appears to have several components to it rather than being purpose built, so perhaps added to over the years. I initially thought the part on the left looked 1930s but I think it is Victorian. Wonder if there are any clues in the style  of windows?  :-\

Quite possible Ruskie.  I wonder what the glassed tower (crows nest?) was used for?  Bird watching, to take advantage of some glorious view?  I think a miracle is needed for this one, but then I thought that with all of them!!  ;D

I wonder if that post bottom right is one of a pair and used to hold a tennis net. Looks about the right height.

I wonder if it's a care home, sanatorium or something like that...look at the benches...just

made me think of that and a lot of the windows are open, which probably means

absolutely nothing ;D ;D

Means it is a hot summer day probably. ;)

That is a huge greenhouse on the right. And behind that - is that part of the same property or a close neighbour?

This again is probably the back of the house, although the greenhouse you would think would be at the back.
 Is that a square tower showing between the 2nd and 3rd chimneys from the left?
Do you think it could look out to sea from that glassed tower?
Many large houses were taken over as RAF officers mess, could that explain the tower?
The only other thing I can think of is it now used as a clubhouse for, golf, cricket, tennis etc.
As you will be able to tell, I have no idea!!
