wd009. "The frame grab wd009 from Whistle Down the Wind must have come from stock footage, as this identical clip was used in the opening sequence of 'So Well Remembered' (1949). Nick Gibley suggests this location could be Burnley but it has been reported that 'So Well Remembered' was filmed in Macclesfield, Cheshire." Rick Parker.
