Good Evening All.

The following set of six are GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARDS with the usual bog standard back and are, of course frustratedly unposted!

There seems to be a crest of sort on the gates. I thought that it resembled that for New College, Oxford but the buildings do not match.

There seems to be a lot of small stone crosses as finials - could it be a religious training place, or at least a school or college with a strong Christian input?

A seminary would account for the cloisters and the crosses.Looking for one...

john bunyan - Christian input occurred to me too but I'm stuck with the towers. Are they actually observatories?

The top of one is glazed, but is it an observatory? Many colleges have a Christian origin, so I still lean towards a University college, but have looked at most of Oxbridge with no exact matches

There seems to be a lozenge shapes coat of arms above an entrance, but Photoshop filters etc cannot enhance it enough to see it clearly.

Looks like Epsom college but tower not quite right.

Would agree with Christian, but I thought some of the features had a definite Moorish touch about them, just a hint.

I have seen similar features in British influenced areas of the Middle East.

There could be a figure holding an orb and sceptre above the door way in the second photo. There is a tall mast/flagpole on top of the building.
