did001a. Beaconsfield? The old part, not the new bit a couple of miles down the road where Brief Encounter was filmed.

did001an. Taken from the house in did001d looking across the road. Note the distinctive cottages especially the pair behind the red mini. In the NOW image the left hand doorway has been blocked and removed (presumably to make one dwelling). The 'shadow' of its porch can clearly be seen.Thanks to Google & Nick Cox

Doctor in Distress - MMMM??? But a yellow sign for Achille Sierre, a dry cleaning firm I remember from my youth.
This is the eastern end of Maidenhead High Street. If you were to put your back against the Courts furniture shop shown in Carry on Camping, (cocam006) you would see this view.
The building to the immediate right of the Mini is still there. It has an unusual curved frontage. Tony Winzar

Doctor in Distress - Marylebone, maybe, or perhaps Eton and Windsor, because I don't remember Marylebone with a curved canopy. Richard Lewis confirms Windsor and Eton.
