This staive was re-erected...1893"

Put that in Google and it converts automatically to "STAVE", reference to Norwegian churches...

Is it part of the church behind?

Edit: looks English but the statue is more Queen Victoria than Virgin Mary.....

Broady, yes, I think that is a church in the background. The statue used to be inside it, but was removed to its current external location.
Correct with English and a queen, but which one?

Spot on, Jenkins. YHC.

Back in the eighteenth century, Minehead had under 2,000 inhabitants but two MPs. One of these, Sir Jacob Bancks, presented this statue of Queen Anne to the town in 1719 (several years after he left Parliament). It originally stood in the parish church but was moved to its current location in 1893 under a canopy built specially for it.

Sir Jacob was Swedish by birth but later became an English national. He not only became a captain in the Royal Navy but also married into the Luttrells, a prominent local family. (His wife was the widow of Francis Luttrell of Dunster Castle.) Knighted in 1699, he continued as MP for Minehead until 1713. It is perhaps not coincidental that the statue was initially placed within a church whose living was in the gift of the Luttrells. (In other words, they effectively had the right to choose the vicar. Indeed, in 1858 it was in the gift of one Luttrell, Lord of the Manor, and held by another - Reverend - Luttrell.)

Well done Dak Man. I thought this could last a bit longer than my recent challenges, but not to be. YHC.

Well it's not Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island (movie was Cul de Sac by Roman Polanski, with a superb ending).

And it's not Eilean Donan (movie Highlander, probably others).

Piel Island, Cumbria? Can't find any reference to a movie there, though.

Oldpax I think I'm going to stick with Piel Island and castle. It does seem to fit the wording on the plinth lower right in the photo, too. Open House if it does fit and please give us the name of the film.
