Could that be Osterley Park? :-D
It is indeed. Why do I associate Osterley with the London Underground is it a terminus? Is it the sort of name which gets unduly famous like Cockfosters. No I discover its on the way to Heathrow which is probably why I know it from pickings up and droppings off.

I'll probably have to look it up but would it be one of the ends of the Piccadilly Line say Heathrow Terminal 5 or
Uxbridge or the aforementioned Cockfosters.

That's the one, during my school days at Rickmansworth we often went into London on the Metropolitan Line from Rickmansworth for museum and gallery visits etc. and I spent many an hour gazing at the departure boards at Baker Street, looking for trains to Chesham rather than Watford because the Watford and Chesham lines split after Moor Park, and I had to go to Rickmansworth on the Chesham branch to collect my bike from school for the ride home. :)

Not where I got it from Mick, but I dont know if the lamp is unique to the particular location.

The Septagonal feature is the Key to getting where it is located though.
