He even pointed out the screw holes where the fire extinguishers were placed in the screen shot! Some alteration to the chalet layout has taken place since filming took place and the block behind Blakey was demolished in 1996.

Holiday on the Buses - After losing their jobs at the holiday camp, Stan ends up working on a demolition site. Bob Buchanan recalls reading that this was an old sound stage at Elstree studios. It was being demolished at the time the film was being made and was used for this final scene. Clive Turner believes that it was Stage 5 at MGM Borehamwood.
