Previously in the Unknown section, The Chapel, High Leigh is from a postcard in Judy Flynn's Collection. Janet Gimber and Brian Curtis have both confirmed that this is the High Leigh near Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire, to be precise, at the High Leigh Conference Centre. Using Bing maps to look at the postcode EN11 8SH, and zooming in onto the cross on the Ordnance Survey map option, just above the text "High Leigh", then switch to the birds-eye view, you can see the building apparently unchanged from when the postcard photo was taken.
