I recognised this view when I was watching the TV adaptation of Johnny and the Bomb by Terry Pratchett last year. I saw them filming in a large building on the way to Zachary’s school (it was meant to be a hospital in the film) and this was taken just across the road from it.

That’s the Cathedral on the skyline – it dates from about the 12th century (or even slightly earlier; despite being a historian I’m always hazy on dates – what’s 100 years here or there?!).
