Bummer, I had this one waiting on the apron too

Therefore, I'm off to the kitchen and leave it for someone else!

I'm uniquely unqualified to compete with the major players in this thread but the configuration of the cockpit windows caught my eye. So perhaps an early B247 ?

This aircraft was not a success. In fact it was a disaster.

Was this built for the Lympne trials or King's Cup races?

What engine did it have, that looks like a Lamblin radiator between the U/C legs?

I think you're right there dook , looking for a low-wing type, I passed over a photo of a Cooper monoplane because it looked like a mid-winger!! Now I see it has an enormously thick wing DOH!
