If we look at Google Earth (present day) the right angled bend in the road is at 51.44N 2.18W. The field markings faintly appear at the same point as the old aerial photo. Hope this is of help. There are (present day) many masts or poles in the area with triple wires (?) all radiating at different angles from a nearby complex.

Same features shown as on EPW038355. I wonder if this is somewhere between Gloucester (EPW038354 taken there) and Bath (EPW038357 taken there).

Long way between those two places. More likely to be around one or the other?

Possible archaeological crop marks on this as yet unlocated photo. Already put forward by "Rebecca", but without the image included.

It is interesting that there are 'lattice-work' 4 pylons in this picture. 2 highlighted to the right of the house & 2 more spaced apart at the top of the field to the left of the house.

There are no obvious cables associated with them.

Archaeological crop or soil mark. Orchards in background.
