  1. Hello Rog,Merry Christmas, Thanks for the photo,it's very difficult to get a good view of the house through the trees without trespassing and without looking like you are up to no good !.It's no wonder we couldn't find the house in the first place !. Avocet
  2. Another Nottingham location from early Summer 1992...
  3. Hello Rog, I wondered about Basford for the gas holders.The site used for Boon seemed to be a very large area of industrial demolition,it looked like a really big works or factory.It had been completely levelled,with just a few large steel RSJs etc left standing.At one side of the site was a small street with a few terraced houses and smaller brick built industrial buildings. Looking forward to the Barnby pictures.
  4. Perhaps I'm thinking of the wrong pub name in Radcliffe.In the background of the photos there is a shop with the name 'Kingfisher' and I think there was a 'Kingfisher Travel Agents' on Main Street Radcliffe about 20 years ago.What are the other pubs on Main St ?.
  5. I think the pub location could be the Black Lion on Main Street Radcliffe on Trent. What about this location,a large demolition site, filmed in the late Summer of 1991 ......
  6. Hello again, anyone recognise this pub ?,filmed in the Summer of 1991.Used the name 'Wind in the Willows' in Boon.Sorry photos aren't very clear,the outside of the building was only filmed briefly.
  7. Some more locations to find coming up soon,been busy with other things just lately. Avocet.
  8. Not at all Rob,been busy just lately,more Boon locations to find soon.
  9. Hello Rog, I nearly went to have another look today aswell but the weather put me off !.I know what you mean about stopping near the gate lodge,I felt awkward when I took a quick shot of the gates when we were there the other week.
  10. I thought about Holme Lane Radcliffe on Trent, but I don't think it is.A lot of the other scenes from this episode were filmed around Colwick and Holme Pierrepont.
  11. Rob, Very good !,I didn't realise what I had typed !!!!.
  12. littlebro, Thanks for that,Derby Road Stapleford,another location sorted.My first thought was the Kwik Fit on Nottingham Road New Basford but it didn't fit. This next location might be quite hard to find.It could be in a suburb of Nottingham,say West Bridgford,or maybe a nearby village.It is from the Summer of 1989.The third photo shows the road in front of the white house.
  13. Here's the next location to name,filmed in Nov/Dec 1990......
  14. I thought that one was a bit too easy !. They filmed there for at least two Boon episodes,one in 1989 for scenes at a boys grammar school and briefly used the entrance as college in 1990. Boon is even mentioned on the NHS Wikipedia page.... Wikipedia-Nottingham High School
  15. Yes,got it,see exactly where you mean now.I seem to remember that for years after it closed,some track and a signal post remained on an embankment of the GNR line to Grantham in the area of Colwick Road/Trent Road/Daleside Road. Next location,I think this will be easy.....
