A nice local one for me.  Wellington Crescent, Ramsgate.  For the bonus point, the Truro Court Hotel.  And for another point, a mystery tunnel thrown in for good measure!  :)

Bonus points if you can name the property that was previously next door?

Thanks John Walker, I was lost before that final clue.

Next one has a different building now, but the same to the side........

Well done Beachbum.  (And JohnFilmer for finding it but holding back)

The demolished special school opposite was The School for Deaf Children.

Thanks for the Clue John Walker, it's Emmanuel Church, Victoria Road, Margate. Zion Cemetery next to it.

A special school nearby was closed and demolished in recent years.  (That should help)

Is this Broadstairs, John?

Not Broadstairs DTT but in the right general area of the county.
