Clues: Surrounded by roads.  Very close to a wedding venue and a Norman church.  NW Kent

Thank you JohnFilmer.  As you mentioned, it's not very visible from the current Street View but I was able to identify it from the arial view.


Next one ...

It is Queen Court Farm, Water Lane, Ospringe.


So, very nearly there Lutonman, but John Walker got the exact building.

At the end of the lane it meets the A2 with an historic building on each corner.

East a bit from there as well Diapason, and a bit closer to the A2.

A little way further east from Teynham, or more pedantically Green Street, Stuart.

Can't remember the name of the road, but I'm sure that's in Teynham. My old boss when I worked in Chatham Historic Dockyard moved into a property in the grounds. Some sort of converted stable I believe.

The lane to the right hand side of the property as you look at the photo, has a church connection. The road past the front of the property is named for its old nature of becoming something else.


Another, recent, GTP is very close by.

Very droll Mr Smith.


Actually it is on the to do list, but we have far more modest dimensions. Even our exposed ceiling beams are reinforced concrete, fool most people until you tell them.


For over 30years We had a 200odd year old money pit with floors that flexed so much that wardrobe doors opened as you walked across the room. I love old buildings, but am now happy to live in a 1940s semi with cavity walls solid floors up and down, and concrete stairs at a sensible angle, thanks very much  :D

Hi John F. Having drunk your cup of tea, are you now mowing the front lawn? ;D

Here's the next, a rather impressive building. The trees on the front fence make it difficult to see on some versions of GSV, earlier dated images are clear.
North Kent, south of A2, church nearby.

Thanks Grandarog, I spent ages checking places with larger houses, but kept finding modern post boxes on poles just around the corner. Then bingo  :)


I’ll return with the next one shortly, need to get on the laptop instead of this iPad, sitting in the garden with a cup of tea.
