Swancombe House (walkway)
St. Ann's Road, Shepherd's Bush, London

Swancombe House is one of several tower blocks that makes up the Edward Woods Estate to the east of Shepherd's Bush.

The main area of filming, around the walkway leading up to a concourse, was completely demolished in 2002 to make way for new housing as part of the regeneration of the estate by Countryside Properties for Hammersmith & Fulham Council.

How to get here:

»

Underground (Hammersmith & City): Latimer Road - Turn left out of the station and walk along Bramley Road leading into St Ann's Road. Continue along here until you reach the Edward Woods Estate by Queensdale Road. +

»

Bus: Ladbroke Grove Map - Route 295, stop St Ann's Road, Wilsham Street. The Edwards Wood Estate is just to the south on the west side of St. Ann's Road. +
