I think these are Pimlico Cottages - with their tall chimneys - situated on the A25 next to Nutfield Cemetery Fullers Earth Works would have been behind them around this time.

Pimlico Cottages with three sets of large chimneys.

Could this be a church or chapel partially hidden by the house?

Top left in this picture is about where the Laporte fullers earth extraction pits were in the 1970's. Not sure which episodes but local lore said that there were a number of sequences filmed here.

Hi Bruce, excellent spot, thank you very much for adding it, I wondered if any of those famous quarries would appear here! That website is an excellent resource for this challenge, thanks very much sharing it with us, happy hunting!

I'm pretty confident (95%) that this is Nutfield Priory just off the A25 between Redhill and Bletchingley. The lake is the right size and shape and the building (now a hotel & spa) has the distintive "spire" too.

Well done christhewino This photo has been unidentified for almost a year but I believe you have cracked it. Everything fits for Nutfield Priory.

Hi christhewino,

Thanks, Nutfield Priory it is - we'll update the catalogue entry for this image with your data and the confirmation (with new caption) will appear here in due course.

Yours, Katy

This is the rear elevation of what appears to be a Tudor or Stuart era house in the Cotswolds. It has a church adjoining and landscaped gardens in the style of Capability Brown including artificial lake. There are some more modern additions including a large conservatory / orangery.

I can't find the lake in the foreground on the modern pictures of Seldon Park Hotel - Croydon

One other suggestion, could this be the "original" Manor House that, after extensive additions and remodeling in the same style, became the Selsdon Park Hotel in Croydon Surrey? It also has a crenellated Italianate tower of the same design, and the land slopes away from the building in the same way as in this photograph.

Could this possiibly be New Lodge,Winkfield,Windsor.The tower looks very similar on Google.

Earlier house (?) with mixed later additions - some look Victorian such as the slightly incongruous Italianate tower.
