    Okay here are three shots of the M1 from 1963. Can anyone name the junctions?















    I'm already thinking 10 and 8.



    I should also mention that for obvious reasons we only have junctions 5 to 18 to choose from.

    The first one I would agree is Junction 10 as that was the M.1/A.6 junction at the time.

    As for the other, it is a shame the number in picture 2 is not clearer.

    The second one almost looks like A414 Hemel Hempstead

    The Google Street View would appear to confirm this as the pylons run alongside the carriageway:



    Google Maps



    In the 2nd one, could it read A4147 (Hemel/Redbourn)?

    The second picture shows the sharp bend on the up ramp, where going south you actually went under the junction 8 bridge first before leaving for junction 8 and went back on yourself.



    How was this used in the plot?

    as I dont remember the epiosode.

    Junction 8 would indeed have been the A.4147 at the time. I had looked in an old road atlas, but not old enough. A check in another confirms your view.

    Bushey

    Thanks Arfur - can you send me a name to credit the 'spot' to.



    Cheers,

    I am sure I know this and its been driving me mad for a couple of years.



    Is the silver car parked or turning into this road? (just to get an idea of the length)

    It is parked. The road is straight, the camera pan makes it look curved.



    I've just noticed the building hidden by the shed on the left of the second photo - very distinctive.

    Those warehouse foot bridges remind me of some that appeared in a McCoy Doctor Who with Daleks and coppers with machine guns.

    The three pictures of the van driving out of the warehouse and driving through the streets comes from an episode of Gideons Way "The White Rat" Starring Ray McANALLY.

    Nothing matches with any Butler's Wharf photos I can find.



    Note that there is a bridge at the end of the lane in the last photo - it is very like a shot of Saint Katherine's Dock from Tin God - but the distinctive chains of Tower Bridge can be seen clearly.



    I would have thought the curved street and the modern office block would be the key to finding this.

    Here is a close up of the second photo:







    It looks like there could well be a railway behind the houses.

    it is annoying.



    sometimes you just want to be plonked in the middle of that road. walk around and work out where you are



    The other clue might be in the street lamps?

    There are hardly any I can see in the street and this along with the one in view looks like an old fashioned tungsten (dim) lamp rather than a sodium, might indicate this is not a large town but a forgotten backwater like a village with hardly any crime (in those days)?

    If you say there is a railway station at the back, this would be an ideal spot for these old style industrial units and the cottages indeed look like rail worker cottages. So if you were to look at the rail line passing through Elstree, you can cross out Mill Hill or Luton (too metropolitan) but you could think about Radlett, Harpenden ,St Albans and the long closed down station which was called 'Park Street Station'.. in fact the area around 'Park Street' does have a lot of industrial units if I recall correctly for a small population area and is on the road to Elstree.



    Just noticed what looks like a railbridge in your latest zoom, this inclines me to think its around the back of Berkhampsted village?

    Unless it's a prop another clue might be the For Sale board. Any chance of getting a bigger capture of this or zooming in? This might help.

    It was probably a prop as it's part of the story line IIRC - the warehouse is up for sale and the agent is about to show a potential buyer around.
