    One location which featured in the Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em Christmas special Jessica's First Christmas (1974) was St Peter and St Paul's Church, Runham, Norfolk - http://www.norfolkchurches.co.uk/runham/runham.htm

    I have written below some location information about the Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em episode Cliffhanger.

    Filming of the cliff scenes took place at Durlstone Point, near Swanage, Dorset, and Dancing Ledge, near Seacombe Cliff, Langton Matravers, between the 7th and 11th of August, with the cast and crew staying at the Richmond Hotel, Swanage.

    I found the above information in the following Book - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Some-Mothers...08/ref=sr_1_1?

    i looked at this church when i was in yarmouth about ten years ago ,the church windows were boarded up and it looked like it had been out of use for years but you could still see where the roof had been repaired after michael crawford went through it !

    The above starts off at Picketts Lock which is about 4 or 5 miles away.

    Does anyone know the location for the episode Fathers Clinic? I mean outside the clinic itself, where there is a Patisserie, as seen at the beginning here, where Frank gets picked up by "Charles"

    The house was in Pearson Street, London E2, near the junction with Appleby Street. The row of houses is long gone thanks to Frank, but the block of flats to the right of his house and over the road is still there, as is the maisonette seen in the background when Frank is directing the van back into the Triumph Dolomite. The green space is still there albeit with a fence and young trees blocking the view, and the church that can be seen behind Frank at about 1'48" is still there (on Dunloe Street).

    Thanks for the offer steve but sorry i don't have any stills i am guessing wimbledon because the roads that frank is chasing the mini downhill are like some of the roads opposite the common up market houses on a road that is on a hillside.

    Ah, but that's the magic of the movies (or of TV shows). They can do one scene in one place and then another scene in the same sequence which is actually miles away
