Re jig022: Nick Flippard has established that whilst "2 Saxon Street" is now 3 Abinger Place there is clear evidence that re-numbering had taken place by 1971. The street had previously been numbered consecutively, "2 Saxon Street" then being 2 Milton Terrace, Abinger Place. The door clearly having a "2" on it when Jack Warner rings the bell.
As result of further viewing Nick says that after Moira Redmond's character meets her fate, there is a railway sequence with the screaming whistle. There is the close-up of a loco in steam, then a long, wide shot of a railway. This shows the line to Lewes from Brighton as viewed high up from the (then) allotments at Hollingdean above the line. Beyond the tracks are the buildings of Preston Barracks along the then A27, now A270, Lewes Road in Brighton.
In the distance, on the other side of Lewes Road, can be seen the Royal Hussar public house (now The Lectern) along Pelham Terrace. The large blocks stretching behind are the factory buildings of CVA, which had originally been the diamond works built for Bernard Oppenheimer. Unfortunately, we still await a decision from the regencysociety.org to use their images in support.
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.
jig001. The seafront of Brighton, King's Road around the Odeon area.
jig001n. The kiosk/beach bar on the left helps to place this on King's Road. I'm standing in front of the Brighton Centre but this may be too far away. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 17-02-2011)
jig002. Lewis visits an estate agents called Restlin's which is a character's name.

jig005a. Whilst we do not normally display updated "now" shots Lewes District Council recently showed this film as part of an ongoing program of film locations in their district. Such was the success of the evening, both for them and Reelstreets we are happy to add some newer "nows". (RL)

jig006. Warner and Barron after the teashop interview.
Church Street in Brighton, says S M Carey.
jig006n. The buildings to the right on the corner of Church Street and Jubilee Street were demolished in 1972 for road widening. Location photo replaces Google Street View image. SD (Modern Photo Added: 10-02-2015)
jig007. Warner and Barron down an alley. Fewell Antiques. I think this is The Lanes area possibly Meeting House Lane.
jig007n. The arched doorway in the background is a Quakers' Meeting House, hence Meeting House Lane. I think this is about right, though there have been redesigns here. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 17-02-2011)
