Okay, confession time....I am officially an idiot.  ::) ::)

I have just noticed on the back of this photo is written "Staffs."  Could it be Staffordshire I wonder???  :-\

Hi Caz,  :D

As soon as I saw it I thought it might be Longford House in Cannock, Staffordshire.

It looks a bit different now, and is a steak restaurant!

It belonged to a family called the Gilpins - my grandma was in service there.

There is a photo of it here - http://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/hotels/england/staffordshire/cannock/cannock-south.html

 what do you think??

Judy  :D



Best wishes, Judy :-))

Hey! Howdy Stranger!  :D

Gee, hard to tell Judy.  If it is, obviously it's had major renovations.  Don't know what to think to be honest.

The Longford House could well be right. Attached is substantially the same building with add-ons.

In my link, the stone pillars are still there.

I don't think it is Longford House though am happy to be proved wrong.

Gate posts are different, front door in Caz's picture is to the centre of the building under the middle windows - windows are different size.

It is very convincing isn't it...I looked for an older version and couldn't find one so I think Judy that you probably have found a match supported by Gregorian's shot  ;D
The only thing that troubles me is the rounded bay which looks original.
