    Well done, mariocki! Outstanding work. I definitely recognise it from the second picture.



    A link that might interest both of you (obviously much more via Google):

    Middlesex Property News | An apartment with grand designs in Stanmore Hall



    Incidentally, I'll be creating a thread for Colette O'Neill, one of the stars of "Thriller" Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are (1974), some time tomorrow.

    Thanks Cornershop, Tom Cruise and Leonardo Di Caprio amongst others have apartments there apparently. It features frequently in ITC shows like The Saint, The Baron and Randall & Hopkirk as well as The Avengers.

    It was also the bad Baron's hideaway in FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED. Peter Cushing's spatted feet ascended those very steps - plus severed head in hatbox etc.

    I believe there's at least one apartment for sale at the moment.



    The asking price... £500,000!

    I must have a look at this episode tomorrow: it is in the box set I think.

    Whatever happened to Alathea Charlton? She seems to have passed on very young. She was sinister in her role as housekeeper in 'Someone At The Top of The Stairs'

    Went once to Oakley Court for breakfast at 09.00 am to take some pics in the deep snow! It was beautiful, this place easily accessable from Maidenhead is well worth a visit! you can wander down to the riverside from Oakley's imposing and gothic grounds! The breakfast was impossible to beat-full English with proper linen, heavy cutlery,pot of coffee etc.

    Hello mariocki. I got this information from the 'Locations' section of the Mike Pratt website:

    Episode
    Location



    Episode 3
    Stanmore Hall, Stanmore, Wood Lane, Middlesex

    All Work and No Pay
    The Foster brothers (Alfred Burke and Dudley Foster) lived at Stanmore Hall.

    The hall had already featured in The Avengers and The Saint
    (5th October 1969)





    Looks like you know more than them! Do you know which episode of The Saint this location was featured in? I'm assuming it was one of the later ones. I still haven't got The Baron and Amazon US cancelled The Avengers set I ordered.

    Hello again, scenesixty. I've enjoyed our exchanges at the 'Coronation Street query' thread this week. Unless I was daydreaming, I'm sure I saw a thread dedicated to Alethea Charlton when I looked at the 20 pages of New Posts upon my return! I must contribute there soon. It was at another thread that Captain Waggett supplied a transcript of a letter, by a friend of the actress, that gave some sad details of Alethea's last few months and I will write it out for you at 'her place' later on.



    To return to the Thriller episode, I will in fact be screencapping it over the weekend. This is something I was planning to do before the thread started, oddly enough, because of Colette O'Neil(l)'s presence in it (mentioned earlier). I'm sure there'll be a few ATW shots of Stanmore Hall that I can use here so watch this space, folks!



    By the way, mariocki, have you identified any other Thriller locations? It would be great if you, or anyone else, can let me know.

    Thanks very much Anthony. I thought you'd given me a link to the Homepage (it's a fantastic but formidable site), but it's directly to the entry on Stanmore Hall, for which I'm very grateful.



    The 'downside' to this while I have a good memory for names and faces, I'm not very good at identifying locations that keep reappearing in films or shows. What's the best way of doing this? Finding out the location before I settle down to watch the show, so I can prepare myself, or to just to be more observant when I watch them a second time? Of course, my 'hobby' of screencapping striking images means I have a lot more time to study the streets and buildings featured.



    Did you find out who that mystery actor was from The Champions?

    Hi Cornershop - I don't really. As Tony says above, a lot of these locations are on his site as they're duplicates of ones used in The Avengers/ITC shows.



    name='cornershop15'] Do you know which episode of The Saint this location was featured in? I'm assuming it was one of the later ones. I still haven't got The Baron and Amazon US cancelled The Avengers set I ordered..


    The Saint episode was The House On Dragon's Rock which is often repeated on ITV4, although it had previously been used in a couple of B&W episodes as well. You'd be best off waiting for the all-singing, all-dancing Avengers DVD sets that are about to be released by Optimum as they look like they're going to be excellent:



    The Avengers Declassified: Avengers News





    name='cornershop15']By the way, mariocki, have you identified any other Thriller locations? It would be great if you, or anyone else, can let me know..


    The only ones I think I've found are Hadley Hurst, a house on Hadley Common in Hadley Wood, which was used in Ring Once For Death and St Michael's on Wildhill (below) which was used in Possession. This also featured in The Avengers' episode The Danger Makers:







    I also spotted a street in Hertford, the name of which escapes me at the moment, in File It Under Fear.



    I've photographed a few others that are already known locations such as Shenley Hall, seen in The Eyes Have It:







    Hope that's of interest.

    It was indeed - thank you so much! I'm pretty certain I saw Shenley Hall 25 years ago when I was 'allowed out' (!), being a patient at the famous hospital at the time. This was originally opened, or unveiled, by King George V, in July 1931 - the same month my mother, also a future patient, and Leslie Caron were born.



    Thanks also for that exciting news about the new Avengers DVDs. I don't understand what went wrong with Amazon's Emma Peel collection but as long as the Optimum releases are of a high(er) standard and include the same Extras I'll be very happy. Haven't seen any episodes since Channel 4 repeated those from the Tara King era.



    Now that I know the identity of the Saint and Randall & Hopkirk episodes, I'll do some Stanley Hall c'aps' as well as the Thriller one.

    I made a bit of a mess of that closing line, apologies. I meant "Stanley Hall caps from those (episodes) as well as the Thriller one."



    Here is a selection of what I captured earlier today, all from the pre-credit sequence of Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are ...



    Firstly, a long shot of the impressive building as the tourists' car parks in front:





    Supposedly seen from Lynda Day George's point of view when she and her friend enter the hotel:





    Here's Lynda at the top of the tower:





    Her friend was played by Kathleen Mallory, seen here falling to her death:





    Finally, a 'fish-eye' image of Stanley Hall, as used in the title sequence:





    I hope to find more interesting views and angles for a future post.

    Some Thriller locations;



    Edgwarebury Hotel (Elstree) - A Coffin For The Bride.



    High Canons (Well End) - Sign It Death.



    Grim's Dyke Hotel (Harrow) - K Is For Killing.



    Buckettsland Lane (Well End) - Once The Killing Starts.



    Tyke's Water Bridge (Elstree? I think!) - A Coffin For The Bride, Murder Motel.



    Clarendon Road (Elstree) - Death To Sister Mary.



    Elstree Studios (Elstree) - Death To Sister Mary.

    (now demolished).



    Euston Station (London) - Night Is The Time For Killing.



    Hope these help. As Anthony has said, many of these can be found on A Guide To Avengerland.

    Many thanks, wellend. How interesting that two of the locations you give include Well End AND Canons in their names. Were they the influence for your name (or alias)?



    As a regular viewer of these ITC shows, it looks like I'll have to make a note of the locations before watching the episodes because I'm so hopeless at recognising them during the show. I wish I had the gift, or knowledge, of being able to say "Oh, there's (such-and-such a place) ...". I don't even know my way round the villages of Emmerdale and The Prisoner. Maybe Camberwick Green and Trumpton are more my 'level'!
