Does this look familiar to any local school boys? I seems to remember being invited to wait under a clock in the hall in this building for the odd minor misdemeanour

In case the picture remains in thumbnail mode the eBay item is listed as "Newbury. Watership in W.Trigg's Series. "

It's the main house at Park House School when it was a private home (prior to 1946). In the 1970's it housed the Headmasters office, secretary’s office, library etc.
