Besides identifying 020 to 022 Paul Borg remembers that the location was a piece of wasteland adjacent to West Ham church and at the back of the bingo hall on West Ham Lane and used as their car park.
"The film crew were set up in Stratford Park opposite where John Moulder Brown made the circle of snow to seek the ring. It was a very memorable time. I had just started Rokeby High school and had to cross Church Street on my way. Jane Asher would comment on how smart our uniforms were and we got a chance to try out some of the film equipment. Jane Asher was a genuinely nice lady who had time for everybody."
