News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

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.
