Buses carrying some horny teens and a frustrated Bertrum Muffet turn around a currently unidentified roundabout. No longer unidentified, Di Davies tells us that the roundabout was where the Dolphin Greyhound track was on the corner of Uxbridge Road and Wellington Street, Slough, hence the floodlighting. She believes that Slough Town FC played there too. There is a traffic light controlled junction there now and the old stadium has been replaced with a massive Sainsbury's. (RL)

Bertrum Muffet (Richard O'Callaghan) walks down Thames Street, Windsor SL4 1PS. Although obviously much has changed since filming, you can still see part of the Theatre Royal sign on the left of frame.

Looks as if it is the same door but a different colour and maybe condition! (RL)

And now he is suddenly walking several streets away in the opposite direction to the previous shot! The same office was used in "Carry On Regardless".

The same place now. Shame about the old Post Office but I'm sure its replacement will look lovely in 150 years time. (PW)

Hattie Jacques decides to hire James Bedsop (Charles Hawtrey) to do some detective work by following Sidney Bliss (Sid James) for her. In this case Hawtrey is following Sid along Thames Street Windsor SL4. The same road appears in 'The Cherry Picker', 'No Sex Please, We’re British' and 'The Vulture'.

A lot more traffic on the road these days! Thanks to 'Jimbo' for the updated shot.

Sid James knows when he is being followed. This is consistent with the geography of the previous shot as they are now round the corner on the short lane leading to the railway station. In the background you can seethe walls of the Windsor Castle grounds.

'Jimbo' captured a slightly brighter looking street. Shop seems to have gone though.

Sid walks into Windsor Station. As the area has been subsequently redeveloped into 'Windsor Royal Shopping', this section is now part of a business interior.

Diagonally opposite to cl007 above. Slope down into Central Station Windsor. Roger sleuthed this one as well.

  • 'Now' required

Sid has given Hawtrey the slip and gets momentarily distracted. He is in 'Windsor Royal Shopping'. It is located opposite Windsor castle in the grade II listed Victorian Railway Station. Many of the original features remain including Jubilee arch, the cobbled stones and Queen Victoria's Royal Waiting Room.

Sid's first taxi ride doesn't quite go to plan outside...

Even though these days there are no vehicles allowed inside the modern Windsor Royal Shopping area! Thanks again to 'Jimbo' for the updated shot.

Sid finally gets a cab to take him to Esme Crowfoot (Joan Sims's) place. Her road is Atherton Court, Eton, Windsor SL4 6BN.

This is also in Adelaide Square, but the houses are so similar that it is difficult to say which. Probably one of nos. 28, 30 or 32... Simon Mills

The number is indeed no. 32! Updated location shot provided by J. Nor

Gripper Burke (Bernard Bresslaw) arrives on Adelaide Square and is a little bit angry!

With everything apparently having gone to plan, Sid gets a bottle champagne and walks along Park Street SL4. But the celebratory feeling is a bit premature.
