It's a church  :)  possibly with a caravan park behind it?! :-\

Those two trees in the churchyard don't look like trees from the UK do they? Is that a caravan site on the left?

I am certainly interpreting it as a caravan site!  I'm not sure what the trees are; if it helps, I'll rescan them tomorrow to see if they can be identified.

The trees look like some sort of palm, not a tree that would grow well in the UK. We do have palm trees in the south (Torquay is one place I remember them) but they are difficult to keep alive in our winter and I believe they have to bubble wrap them for protection.

Yes, it does look like a Phoenix Palm.  Maybe it's in the Channel Islands, I will have a mooch.
