This is a photograph of my Grandfather Henry Burns born 1872 at Berry Hill

I know I may be clutching at straws but I wondered if anyone can identify the location. He lived in the vicinity until 1914 when he joined the 2nd Battalion Monmouthshire Regiment and was posted to Belgium

The 1891 census shows him as a groom at Tanhouse Road, Newland, a boarder with the Bowey family. He was only 18 at this time and he appears older on the photograph

I would be very grateful to receive any suggestions
