If you have any information regarding this film, any of the stills, or even better, some NOW shots pleaseclick here.
We are always looking for more help with identifying these filming locations and would be grateful for any positive identifications, snippets or references you can offer about these movie making locations.
To view the now location shot, just mouseover the filming location still. Stills with a red border do not have a now shot.
dd001. The entrance to Harwich port. In the background Major Fairclough (William Lucas) is just arriving in the white Volvo.
dd001n. Completely different now, of course. The railway tracks are in the same place, and the station (out of shot, left) provides a fixed reference. (Modern Photo Added: 18-07-2014)
dd002. Fairclough gets out of his car. In the background we can see the houses at the end of Parkeston Road (right of shot), and houses in Harcourt Avenue/The Vineway (centre).
dd002n. The view now is almost totally obscured by shipping containers and trees, but the end of Parkeston Road is just visible to the right of this shot. (Modern Photo Added: 18-07-2014)
dd003. The boat carrying the Small Faces and their manager heads out into the River Stour. Shotley Gate is visible on the far bank.
dd004. Fairclough approaches the premises of Berg and Herz, diamond merchants, in Hatton Garden. Somewhere around 46/47/48 Hatton Garden, but difficult to pin down as there have been so many changes. A tip from John Tunstill leads me to a screen shot (spl023) from 'The Secret Place'. I'm sure this is the same premises that's visible in the right of that shot.
dd004n. The dry cleaners is at number 46; the lamp post has clearly changed, and I'm not convinced it hasn't also moved. My best estimate at the moment is that Sienna Buildings, at number 47, is the spot. (Modern Photo Added: 05-06-2014)
dd005. Whilst Fairclough is cracking the safe, Lester Benson/Arthur Gittins (Kenneth Cope) is driving around in the getaway car.
dd005n. Further north on Hatton Garden. (Modern Photo Added: 27-05-2014)
dd006. Benson stops to buy cigarettes from a machine.
dd007. Detective Tom Jenkins (Conrad Phillips) drives to work (from 'Deacon's Hill SW5'). Grey's Radio & TV, Fantos, Shirley, Woodhouse & Son, and Boots are visible in this and subsequent frames.
dd007n. This is looking up Watford High Street. The old Grey's store, visible right of shot, is still there, now The End. Fantos to Boots have gone, replaced by part of the new Harlequin Centre. (Modern Photo Added: 27-05-2014)
dd008. He arrives at the Police Station.
dd008n. Watford Police Station, the police vehicles replaced on this occasion by no fewer than four National Grid vans. (Modern Photo Added: 27-05-2014)
dd009. and parks at the side.
dd009n. Watford Police Station and the Magistrates Court. There are many more trees now. (Modern Photo Added: 27-05-2014)
dd010. Jenkins and Paul Verlekt (George Mikell), armed with a sketch of their suspect, now embark on a tour of London, questioning random members of the public. Here is Tom Jenkins at Trafalgar Square.
dd010n. Impossible to get the height, of course, but this is the same location today. (Modern Photo Added: 27-05-2014)
