I don't think it's Taunton?  Cheesy

I can't see the image, so I'm going to say it was Taunton. Possibly Taunton, New York, where the right of way of the former interurban trolley line has become Onondaga Boulevard.

The image is an attachment and needs to be clicked on.   I wondered about Machu Pichu.

I know it's an attachment. Apparently it's in .heic form, whatever that is. It's not a format my laptop can open.

Windows wants 0.79p for me to download something, so won't spend that amount to decide it's NOT Taunton  Cry

Here's the image (that I think I've identified location of!) for anyone having problems with the attachment in the OP (Original Poster / topic starter).

Definitely not Taunton - that ain't the Quantock Hills in the background. I'm fairly sure it's not Melksham either. One too many platforms.

Nah. Burrow Mump. Although it appears someone has had away with the ruined church atop.
