Wonderfully atmospheric, thanks! Do you have a date for this?

I took this picture in October 1995. Thanks for the comment and rating.

The house at the end intrigues me because it seems to have two porches, the bigger one covering the other. Thankyou for the picture, David. I never knew Harefield very well and so this spot is unfamiliar to me.

That's an interesting point. Since the front door is next to the structure, I'm wondering what the structure is for. There seem to be streaks of light either on it or coming through it, yet it's in the shaded side of the house. Perhaps I ought to go back there.

It would be good to see another picture especially if you can be 'Sherlock' and solve the mystery.(maybe the white things are 3 pairs of Jack's Long Johns hanging out to dry Smile

Wow, that's odd isn't it. It seems to be a rather grand gate through to the back garden. At some point later, I assume, that huge shelter was built over that corner and they thought they might as well just go over the gate with it as well. At first I thought the "Long Johns" were beams of sunlight shinging through something, but having enlarged the picture, I think they're just part of the gate painted white.

I was thinking the porch was on the front of the house but see now it is the side. If it is a gate leading to the garden, could that mean that the building is all one house and the garden area further along belongs to it?

That's quite possible.

I've been studying this location on Google Earth, and looking at the photos that are with it. The building is Black Jack's Mill. The sloping structure is a long verandah that crosses the mill race, which begins at the bridge you can see carrying the towpath. The building with the chimney flue appears to be the business part of the mill. The thing with the white stripes is the gate onto the verandah. I expect it's all residential now. There's a good photo on that site taken from the bridge over the race.
