In this shot taken from the bottom of Bedhampton Hill, we are at the junction of three hills at Belmont, Bedhampton.

Behind the camera is Bedhampton Hill, to the left Portsdown Hill Road, and facing is the slope of Bedhampton Road.

To the left of the people are the gates to Belmont House on which most of the Belmont estate was built in later years.
