One That Got Away, The - Impressive row of towers, a gun site in a park. London? Hyde Park?

oga001. Impressive row of towers, a gun site in a park. London? Hyde Park?

One That Got Away, The - Supposed to be Cockfosters, north London suburb. Looks too South Ken to me with Victorian style buildings, and walled front gardens. Cockfosters is too 1930's and only blossomed with the coming of the Underground Railway. Could it be Hornsey, with the Muswell Hill slope starting in the background of 002a?

One That Got Away, The - Meant to represent Grizedale Hall in the Lake District, but from the photo from the site www.u-35.com, none of the windows, portico or balconies match up.  IMDB suggests Trent Park mansion, part of Middlesex University in Hendon.

One That Got Away, The - The site www.bbm.org.uk has stills from the film but this house is not the one on the u-35 site. Is this rumour becoming truth by repetition, perhaps?

oga003dn. Also oga004/c. Not the same angle I'm afraid, but this is the site of Grizedale Hall taken in June 2009. It's now an education centre for the forest. Some of the outbuildings and retaining walls seen in other screen grabs can be seen in the background. Picture and info by Stephen Manship.
