Never Let Go - The corner of Chichester Road and Chichester Place in Maida Vale ... I actually lived in the flat above the garage used in the film. It was above Trek Tyres garage not the Maze Works (see below) which I have never heard of. The film people paid my mum £25 to erect the facade, a lot of money in those days. I remember the filming of this and The Comedy Man. My brother and nephews were in a sceen playing football as Edmund Perdum came running down the road. It was great to see the stills.

Never Let Go - This is the Southgate Arms - still extant, and located at the southern end of Southgate Road, N1.  It's pretty much as it was as it is a listed building; it's retained the Barclays Ales & Stouts motif.  Obviously its distinct green tiling can't be seen in the film, but see the now pics I'll send later. NB:  In this shot the pub's name can be clearly seen on its upper corner lintel.  For every other shot in the film they covered the sign so as (presumably) mask the location; they must have slipped up on this take. Thanks to Roger Rettig.
