Thank you Howard Jones for pointing me in the direction of Exmouth.

I can confirm that this photograph is of the Withycombe Village Road area of Exmouth looking in an easterly direction.It is just a short distance east of the photo in EPW023922.

It was fun to check the details and gradually confirm that this is the location. The thatched house is still there. The Sleepcentre is an old industrial type building with a public clock on the end wall not visible in the photo. The building to the east of the Sleepcentre still causes a kink in the road. Up St. John's Road there is the terrace on the left and a pair of Suburban semis are on the right at the end of development then. Up Bradham Lane there is now a road leading to the lft between the terraces called Brooklands Road.

This is a confirmed identification.

Great job Class 31, we'll update the catalogue and post the correct location data here in due course. This is another that was recorded as "Harpenden" in the Aerofilms Ltd Register...



Yours, Katy

From adjoining image numbers this is likely to be in Gloucestershire.

I take back this comment. I've no idea whether this is in Gloucestershire, or not.
