A rare visit to the Clonbrock collection with a beautiful sylvan scene of a town or village and in the background a spire and a pointy (Technical term) mountain. The fencing along the paddock makes me wonder if this is in Ireland...

And (despite our thoughts on the somewhat "un-Irish" looking fencing), it was established fairly quickly by derangedlemur, sharon.corbet and B-59 that this Ireland. And the hills of County Wicklow specifically. The clock tower in the square of Enniskerry village has been highlighted by Dún Laoghaire Micheál, and the church spire of St Patrick's church also stands out. As the village has not changed much, and largely owes it's layout to developments in the first-half of the 19th century, we haven't been able to refine the date range significantly. (At least, not yet......)
