Thanks johnfilmer . It was the Hatch clue that did it.
     I wish we could get a few more folks on board GTP .Give us a bit of competition. Seems to be only a small clique of us interested.


                   Next one should go pretty quick.


I think quite a few are on board, but for various reasons don't or can't participate. I moved away over 45 years ago and  like I expect many more have limited access to suitable pics. Nevertheless  I enjoy the search, piecing together the clues and knowledge gained, with the occasional stroke of luck in guessing a place I haven't seen for decades.
So on behalf of people like me, thanks to you folks for keeping GTP ticking over.

Spot on Grandarog. The last “place” that I guessed was at Kingsdown, hence my emphasis on going West, to West Kingsdown.


Blackadder was obviously a link to Edmund, and the reference to nearby Brands Hatch was picked up.


It’s a lovely little church, with the distinction of having my in laws buried in the Churchyard. I have been keen to use this for ages, but struggled with lack of street view until the two Kingsdown names could be linked.


If you can, now we are “free” go and visit. In the middle of a wood with a parking area.


Over to you Grandarog.

Wikipedia has it that the village name was “tweaked “ in the 1950s to differentiate it from similarly named places in east Kent.

Very quiet.


This has an unusual dedication, but don’t forget to go West from the last place. Easily seen on Google Maps, just not on street view.


Maybe Blackadder will Hatch a clue?

Sorry to have been awhile, now back at the laptop.
It was a guess Diapason, but the only church around here that I could think of in that style.
Next one - still a churchy one. This is only about 1000 years old, quite isolated and not visible on GSV. Stil in use.
The clue ( a big clue...) is that it is west from the last one.

Absolutely correct, John.


I was a bit concerned when I put this one up as I had never seen a photo (unique ?) of this aspect of the building (north side vestry) but hoped that the architecture would be recognisable.


I assumed, correctly, that either you or granderog would recognise it.

I can’t find picture of the correct aspect, but given the architecture clue, I’ll have a punt on St Catherine at Kingsdown.

I've found this one but I'll hold fire as I've had quite a few GTP entries recently.
