Where is this?

Items seem to be able to arrive at a museum without any documentation. We guess this photo has been hanging around for years. It’s a large photo being eight by six inches – a good old British photo size. It is card mounted with that mount measuring about 14 by 11.5 inches. The photo depicts a large four square brick built house with interesting chimneys. All very well, except that we can’t identify it. We appeal for your help.

A large and distinguished looking house - but where is it?

This really should be identifiable. The chimneys are certainly distinctive.

It’s probably too much to expect that anybody might recognise the family group.

The cow looks to be a Jersey. She could well be in calf.

Another distinctive feature could be the thatched wall to the right of the house.

If this is Market Lavington or Easterton then we do hope somebody can tell us just which house this is or was.

If it isn’t, then we feel the picture should go to a more suitable home.

Either way, do get in touch and let us know where this is.
