The mansion looking down on the island is presumably about the Magazine Gap Road level. It does not appear to be war damaged despite its abandoned look.

Hi there,

Looking closer the big house in the foreground, it was indeed damaged, but uncertain what might have caused it:  The tiled roof was gone.    Comparing the location with present day map, I think the big house was way east of Magazine Gap Road.  It was likely #28 Peak Road.

Best Regards,
