            Eden - on the old forum you posted a then-recently discovered address in Wimbledon for Stanley Baker which has since been demolished. Could you refresh my memory as to what it was please? Thanks in advance.

              Alas,my link to that page was lost when the old forum was closed down.I did not have hindsight to save it.Subsequent websearches simply put him as living in Wimbledon with hi wife Ellen..before moving to Epsom. The only verifiable address is 93 Embankment,Chelsea,and that is regarded possibly being a work office,or address he co-owned. Sorry. This man is so elusive.Even the alamy/getty pics are fleetingly elusive,jusy showing him and his missus outside their snippet of a house.

                That's a shame - it was the location of his character's house in the film Robbery which had been unknown for years. I wish I'd had the foresight to save it. The Embankment address was Alembic House, a building he co-owned as you say, and was the HQ of his production company, Oakhurst. It was also used for a scene in The Italian Job.
