During this new lockdown I've been going through my old photos from Alnwick garden which has a renowned rose garden. I've been through hundreds of photos but can't find a label for this large flowered single.
Any ideas?

The closest that I could find in HMF advanced search is a DA from 1997 called 'Ann'
See:

Hope it matches up! Crossing Fingers!

Good call, especially as it it's listed as being grown at the Alnwick.

Good call, especially as it it's listed as being grown at the Alnwick. Google 'Singularly beautiful roses Ann' and a PDF by Paul Zimmermann will come up. It has a great write-up on many single Austin Roses including an. Hope this helps. I could not attach the PDF so you'll have to look it up yourself. Sorry

Thanks for the suggestions but I'm almost certain it isn't Ann. There is a label for that one but it's about 100 yards away from my photo one and looking through my hundreds of photos I don't think I have one of a pink semi double matching Ann.
This one is much more to the red side of pink, definitely a single (Ann is semi double), and has very large blooms, 4 - 5 inches across.
I've asked David Austin roses and Alnwick Garden so hoping they can solve the mystery.

I think I've found it.

Rose (Rosa 'Rose of Picardy')

I haven't heard anything from Alnwick Garden or David Austin roses but I've been going through my old rose folders (we have another Covid lockdown here in the UK), and I have this in a folder of that name. It doesn't seem to be available any longer.

So it looks like mystery solved!
