Burford Road
Brentford, London

(whereabouts of filming unconfirmed)

"On Location" refers to filming being either at Burford Road (film diary) or Clayponds Avenue (or Clayponds Lane in the film shot list) on 25th September; however the film shot list indicated it was shot on the 27th when filming was taking place in the Kingston area. Richard concludes that as Clayponds Avenue was unaltered in the film shot list this is the most likely place.

Looking at Burford Road, the houses here are all recently built, and in 1973 the houses in shot were derelict, it is possible that the corner with Clayponds Lane was the one used. However, without further records to clarify the status of those houses we'll probably never know for sure!

How to get here:

»

Rail: Brentford - From the station, turn left on Windmill Road, and then left into Hamilton Road. This then becomes New Road. Cross over Ealing Road into Burford Road, and carry on to the junction with Clayponds Lane. +

»

Bus: Brentford Bus Map - Burford road is nearest stops BS and BC (route 65). The road is north of the stops on the eastern side - carry along it until you reach the junction with Clayponds Lane. +

Additional Notes:

»

The houses on screen are derelict, boarded up and in some cases falling down! It is safe to assume that these were demolished some time afterwards so no evidence of their location exists.
