My immediate thoughts are Vale of Evesham or Somerset Levels
Scott - Lincolnshire
Jobson - Lincolnshire, Suffolk
Needham - Lincolnshire
Wayet - Lincolnshire

Similar skyline to part of the North Somerset Levels.

My first thought was somewhere like the Vale of Evesham.

I'm not so sure about the North Somerset Levels - they were historically wetlands, so I wonder if the fields and hedgerows are quite right for that. Possibly more significantly, many of the villages (in the more southern levels - also in the northern ones??) are on higher land which became islands when the surroundings flooded, and there's no sign of that here.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

Thanks Malky, Arthur and Skoosh for your ideas and suggestions and for taking the time to look....I haven't found a match yet and there are no clues on the back.
I will have a look at the suggestions that you have made so far.
