NotesEdit

  • Location filming for this episode was conducted near the Brown Cow Brewing House which stood at the junction of Albion Street and Harrogate Street in Salford. The pub closed two years after filming and was demolished soon afterwards. The footbridge that Deirdre Langton uses ran from Albion Street over the railway lines in the Windsor Bridge Cattle Station to Hope Street. Albion Way in Salford now runs over the approximate site of the pub and Albion Street, also industrial units in Brunel Avenue stand on the site of the railway station and the footbridge has similarly been demolished. See link.
