    Yes to both Mark. Now why do i get the feeling you already have somewhere in mind?

      Well, I'll be honest and say that it had the air of Heligan to me - up by the house itself, but I can't find anything on the web, or in my own photos that looks anything like it!

      I'm leaning to Cornwall rather than Devon anyway - for no good reason at all.
      Cheers,

      Mark.

        The lost gardens of Heligan, now there's a place i have no been to for many many years. I visited there back in the 90's when i used to go camping down near Goran Haven. Nope, not Heligan, Mark, keep looking.

          Yes, I searched Heligan, up and down and round and about, but nothing.

            Steve, was I right in speaking of weavers' windows and old chapel - or ex-chapel?

              Is it in the UK, Steve?

              Sorry Ivy. I simply cannot answer the question about weavers windows and old chapel. Not because i do not want to, but simply because i cannot find any information regarding the buildings you see in the photo. Have looked several times because i wanted to use the information for a clue, but no luck i am afraid.

              "Kitchen/Nursery garden?". no, not according to the information i have seen regarding the area in the photo. But keep in mind that i know not much about gardens and the like, but the description i have for that garden area is different.

              Sorry i could not be more help, if i do find any info regarding the buildings i will let you know.

                OK - so we're struggling!!

                We've got it down to two counties - let's go one step further:

                Is it in Devon?

                (Looking at Buckland, Buckfast etc.)
                Cheers,

                  Not sure i want to narrow it down too far just yet, Mark. West of Exeter rules out a fair chunk of Devon, and i will also add that you can rule out the North of Devon, so that's another chunk out of the way. I think that's fair at this point.

                    Could it be an over grown old Chapel just outside Newmill, Cornwall???

                      No, afraid not. Again, i do not have a clue what purpose the building serves - either past or present. In relation to this puzzle it is just a building that happens to sit within the grounds of this place.

                          Four days! Not often one of my puzzles survive that long. Must be the Olympics!

                          Time for a bit of help perhaps? We know the building is not important, other than helping in the photographic recognition of this place. So what about plants?, maybe they are 'important'? Like i have said, finding a photo of this particular part of this place is not that easy via a normal google search, but i have discovered that Google Earth will be your friend with this one.

                          Ivy, your earlier reference to it being a kitchen garden. I have done more research and discovered that this area was indeed a kitchen garden in the past, but was replanted into what you see today many years ago.

                            They're herbs aren't they Steve - hence Ivy's question about it being kitchen garden I think.

                              Yes, I did have herbs in mind, because it was not the brussela sprouts, potatoes and peaches type of plot. But I couldn't really ID many of the plants. I've been hunting for herb gardens that are in an area something like that, but without success so far.

                                I wonder whether it's more medicine related - would explain the variety somewhat - not that that helps me much!!

                                Just spent 20 minutes toddling around Buckland Abbey on Google Earth, but Steve has basically told us it's not there I think.
