Who lived in a house like this?
« on: Saturday 25 September 21 13:12 BST (UK) »
I would love to know where this property is. I bought this postcard in Minehead. The back has no writing on it. it is undated but I would guess at 1950s/60s
Enjoy the search, as I bought it to give the chatters something to do  ;D
Thanks for looking.

I think maybe the proportions and details are not the same, but this image looks a bit similar:

There are similarities, the castellated tops and windows look the same but I'm not sure it is the same building.
Thanks for looking.

Similarities to Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire - maybe.  :-\  The windows are wrong though.

I feel it is a Victorian mock castle - or even a Victorian municipal building masquerading as a castle.

I'm getting the feeling of something ecclesiastical, though I don't have any definite ideas. Possibly not grand enough for a bishop's palace, but maybe a deanery or somewhere else on a cathedral close (note the road and relatively small forecourt).

The number plate on the left hand car looks as though it might yield something with a high-res scan - would you be able to do that, please?

Bartle, Bilton, Bingley, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson
