10 Rillington Place - Timothy Evans in the hills above his home town. Gareth Williams believes that this is on the mountain behind Merthyr Vale looking south toward Cardiff so would be looking across to where the A470 is today, situated on the other side of the valley. This location is up on the mountain side behind the cafe, train station and police station shown in the other pictures. The street roof tops left to right below is Cardiff Road with Aberfan (Bryngolau), just behind John Hurt's left shoulder, on the other side of the Taf river. He used to play there as a child so it should be familiar to him. (RL)
