North London locations?

Postby JMascis666 on Fri Oct 01, 2010 3:38 pm

Anybody know of any scenes that were filmed in North London, looking particularly around Islington, Holloway, Dalston etc.

Many Thanks.

Not many in the places that you mention really mate. The town hall in 'Balance of Power' is in Essex Road Islington and 'All Quiet On The West End Front' features a lot of the Design & Business Centre which is also in Islington.

The main North London location was the first Winchester Club which was located a few doors down from Chalk Farm station.

Those ones on Essex Road and the Business & Design Centre are just what I am looking for.

I will be actively re-watching those episodes soon, I live nearby and just wanted to see how the old place had changed since those days.

Thank mate.

So where abouts are you from exactly? I used to go clubing over in Islinton a lot during the early 90's.

Living just off Kingsland Road, which I know is Hackney, but my flat falls under Islington.

I frequent a few of the pubs, not one for clubbing myself.

Just in case anyone except me cares, but I found this elsewhere on the forum.

Season 3
Episode : In

Pub where Terry and Jocks sister meet Jock – The Alma 59 Newington Green Road N1
Terry chases after no. 109 bus – Newington Green Road N1

I can't wait to get a look at this episodes, both of those locales are just around the corner from me. :lol:
