T9 No. 30707 (allocated Bournemouth in 1957 and withdrawn March 1961) and Standard Class 4 No. 76008 (allocated Salisbury 1955-67) are pictured on a three carriage passenger service near Oakley (Basingstoke). It is likely therefore that the photo was taken around 1960.

The carriage set carries the number 851. From what can be seen in the photo and the listing produced by the Southern Railway Email Group, this looks to be a set of BR MkIs assembled in 1954.
