As our hero has cycled up the High Street, because he's completely gormless, he's now cycling down the High Street! Look at the chimneys now on the left!

Obviously somewhere nearby because if the crew couldn't get there on their bikes from the studios, some 200 yards down the road, then it was too far!

Maybe a high rise in Borehamwood . . . Eric 5041 explains that the only tower block in Borehamwood is Canterbury House and this is not it.

Maybe Canterbury House, now remodelled.

High Street again, a slight rise, up towards the station? Eric Parsons advises that this is Shenley Road in Borehamwood, near the junction with Theobald Street.

The same street, and house where the boys lived in "Pop Performer" and "Driving Instructor". Obviously belonging to one of the film crew. But we still don't know where. Do you?

There was a Lyndhurst School once upon a time in Borehamwood, a clue maybe. Lyndhurst Rise is Knowl Way in Elstree advises Eric Parsons.

Eric Parsons recognised this as Knowl Way in Elstree again.

In and around St. John's church, Aldenham green. Though when these pics were taken it was Aldenham brown!

Yes: opposite the green and just north of the "Gallop hotel" in Murder at the Gallop. SJ

Gravestones intact but one's wobbling, and a tree's gone. SJ

And another tree has gone, giving us a clearer view of the green in Aldenham. SJ

Well snapped though, can't blame John Hines for the colour.

All, reputedly gone. Demolished. Kaput! But, look closely at you'll see "Noggits Corner" from "Driving Instructor"! Eric Parsons tells us that this was at the front of MGM Elstree studios. These buildings have been demolished and the tesco superstore petrol station now occupies the site.

Eric Parsons locates this as Shenley road, just outside the studio.
