Any chance of a higher resolution scan of statue on RH side of door please?

Haha, just noticed it's the boughs of the tree & shadow :-[

Does the round column look slightly Scottish baronial? And is the building at right angles to a higher one with chimneys?

Thanks Arthur for your in depth analysis of the building and surroundings, I too considered if it was the rear of the building that we see, also, to the right, is an additional  part of the building that is out of view. All the points that you make are worth investigating.
Thanks also to Josey, I am unfamiliar with architecture so ideas are worth consideration.
Thank you both for looking and taking the time to respond.

I had a look at Twyford Abbey (Yorkslass suggestion in reply#22).  The windows are similar as are the long slit type windows in the turrets.  Twyford Abbey was designed and built  by William Atkinson.  Could this be another building designed by him?

I keep being drawn to Nonsuch Mansion in Cheam, I know it's not the house we are looking for but it has similarities in style.  http://www.rootschat.com/links/01qyr/

Thinking along the same lines as ChrissieL .....  Nonsuch Mansion was rebuilt by Jeffry Wyatville early 1800's, some other buildings he designed are listed here....  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffry_Wyatville

Still going through the list
Robbins - Wolverhampton.
Spooner - Monmouthshire & Wolverhampton.
Warner & Loundes - Dudley/Smethwick.
Dod(g)son - Heysham/Liverpool/Wolverhampton

Surprisingly, Twyford Abbey featured prominently in the opening scenes of this weeks episodes of “Silent Witness”!

Mabeldon Manor, Kent, looks like a pretty good match.
