I have a keen interest in the involvement of Northern Ireland during WW2 and have a website called "The Second World War in Northern Ireland"

I find this picture very interesting and would like to be able to do a "Then and Now" type comparison picture of the location.

Do you know where this picture was taken?
I guess it is the Stable Yard of a large Manor House which, like so many, has been used by the Army.
I hope to hear from you soon.
