Is this just down the road, where "Gideon's Day" was made? Can't make it match. Brother Brian

A minor "stately" home, but included as it isn't a regular tourist venue.

Mark adams in his book 'movie locations' suggests Wilton House, Near Salisbury. Obviously not the main house, but a cottage in the grounds? One to ponder. Brian Tunstill.

Not too sure about this one. Is it Chester Place? The reason that all this bomb damage was filmed in The Regent's Park, is because Cambridge Terrace and some other sites were really war damaged and not rebuilt for years. Does anyone have the dates of the bombing or any more info? I used to live there, in the 70s/80s, so I am interested in the history of the park. Brother Brian.

Wherever we thought this might have been, Denis Hoare has found evidence that it was actually Robert Street, London NW1. looking westward. I have yet to find out whether any copyright is attached to the photo evidence that Denis has provided. (RL)

Panning past Edgware Road. Many changes but the Connaught Place terraces (to the left) clinches it. SJ.

The side of a church?

A church indeed, St. Mary Magdelene in Munster Square, London NW1 says Denis Hoare who provideda Google Earth capture to support. There cannot be many drainpipes so distinctive. Thanks to Denis and his "informer" who watched the filming both here and in Chester Terrace. Google now replaced by SJ
