News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

That is where I found it Conan, thanks.
It looks a lovely place to visit with a picnic on a sunny day, but it is has no place as a discussion thread on KHF, so apologies for that.

My grandfather-in-law lived in Belvedere when he was given it by a local as payment for building work that he did, hence the possibility of a Kent connection.

I''ll get my coat......

Thanks Conan. I think I have tracked it down to Waltham Abbey, not in Kent at all.

The building to the left of the bridge looks more like a gatehouse and seems to be unattached to the church tower itself

I was wondering if anyone recognizes this location?
I have flimsy subjective evidence to suggest it might be around Erith or Belvedere, historically part of Kent albeit no longer so.

The painting was given as payment to a builder who lived and worked in Belvedere in the early to mid 1900s.

I have unsuccessfully internet-searched for the location.

I look forward to any feedback.
