It was a sandy area and we took the model down there and did a simple little shot which was inserted into the production, to give it s sense of scale. The rest of the model filming was done at Ealing."

In the 1990s, Hatchford Park was bought and converted into luxury apartments. Unfortunately the manor house was destroyed in a fire during 2000, but has since been restored by its developers, Latchmere Properties and Countryside Properties.

The school occupies what used to be the Lillesden Estate Mansion, built at the estate (south of Hawkhurst) in 1855 by the banker Edward Loyd, who moved there after marrying.

The school closed around 1999 and has been abandoned ever since. Due to the theft of its lead roof, water damage is now sadly causing the buildings to collapse. However, it is now owned by a property developed and expected to be converted into private apartments at some point in the future.

Lime Grove Studios were opened in 1915 by the Gaumont Film Company, and then owned by J Arthur Rank in the 1940s.

The two main towers of the studios were demolished during 1993, and a new residential block was built in its place. Old television-related names have been used, with Gaumont Terrace and Gainsborough Court. However, terraces that used to house BBC offices at the northern end are still there, now as private residences.

Louvre Museum, Rue de Rivoli, Paris, France
48°51'40", 02°20'20"

The Louvre has existed since the 12th century, starting out as a fortress on the western edge of Paris and then later being 'modernised' into François I's dwelling and then the palace of Louis XIV. It became a museum in 1793, and is probably most famous for housing Leonardo da Vinci's painting, Mona Lisa.

Lucas CAV, Research and Development Block, 54 Larden Road, Acton, London

The company CAV, owned by Charles A. Vandervell, moved into Warple Way in 1904, and made accumulators, carriage lamps and switchboards, pioneering the dynamo-charged battery. Joseph Lucas Ltd. bought the company in 1926, after which the company would make fuel injection pumps for industry and then for aircraft in the Second World War. The company was merged with Bosch in 1931, but the German company was thwarted by the War, though Lucas continued to market their products. Bosch finally bought back the company in 1954. The company's name changed to Lucas CAV in 1978, where in around 1980 there were 3,000 employees. The company has since closed down, with Bosch establishing its own plant in Cardiff in 1991.

Marylebone Station, Marylebone, London
51°31'20", -00°09'46"

Opened in 1899 as the terminus of the Great Central Railway, up until the Channel Tunnel Rail Link it was the newest of London's stations, and as such never really became as busy as other established routes. However, changes in the late 1980s meant that services expanded, with Chiltern Railways introducing routes to Birmingham, and a new company Wrexham Shropshire and Marylebone Railway started in 2006 expecting to increase the range of routes even more - making the station far more important than in the 1980s when it was almost closed.

Production Notes:
  • 24 Nov 1969: A reshoot of the scenes in the station was required when it turned out that the negatives for the 12th November were accidently damaged during processing. (The Silurians DVD - Now and Then featurette)

No Man's Land Sea Fort is one of four forts built in the Solent in the 19th Century to help protect Portsmouth, originally from the threat of Napoleon though that had passed by the time of completion. Subsequently, it played a strategic role in the defence of the English Channel during WWI, and had anti-aircraft guns during WWII. The fort is now a private (expensive) luxury hotel, with some 21 guest bedrooms, and has two helipads. The nearest place to see the fort from land is The Esplanade at Seaview, Nettlestone, and directions are to this point. Or alternatively the Portsmouth-Fishbourne car ferry passes quite close to the fort if you travel to the island that way.

Norris Castle was built in the Norman style by James Wyatt in 1790. It was built to look like a castle, but this was only for show as there are no actual fortifications. Queen Victoria stayed at the castle when she was young, and this led her to purchase nearby Osbourne House. The owners at the time of filming, the Coventrys, still live at the castle. It is a private residence, but used to be open to the public during the 60s and 70s.

Old Baal Clay Pit is one of a number of clay pits within central Cornwall. Owned by Imerys, the pits are now part of the China Clay Woodland Project, a project in association with Natural England to transform the stark quarries into native woodland. The site has now been subject to an Egyptian-French-Cornish venture by Orascom to develop it into an "eco-town", which would start with some fifty houses being built around the flooded clay pit in order to illustrate what could be created. There is local opposition to these developments, which would destroy the habitat of many birds and animals that have made the abandonned area home, including endangered species.

Billingsgate Fish Market hails back to the 16th Century trade at Billingsgate Wharf, which became established in its own riverside building in 1849. The arcaded market hall was built on the site in 1875 by the architect Sir Horace Jones and was in use until the fish market moved to its new location in Docklands in 1982. The old market building itself is now used as a corporate events venue.

Additional Notes:

  • As with much of London, many of the older buildings have since been demolished and replaced with new ones. However, the market itself still stands, as does the smaller building opposite (sandwiched between two modern blocks!).

  • As the scenes on Pineham Road were cut before transmission the actual location wwhere filming took place is unknown; however, being that much of the action took place on nearby Archer's Court Road, and that most of Pineham Road is single track and hardly suitable for a rocket convoy(!), it seems likely that it was filmed near to the junction with Archer's Court Road.

Built as an example of how a naturally beautiful landscape could be developed without spoiling it, the village was start on a private peninsula in Snowdonia by Clough Williams-Ellis; he steadily designed and enhanced the 70 acre area during the course of his life, and the village has some 50 buildings making up hotels, apartments and shops. Since the time of filming, the woodlands have had extensive clearing and restructuring, especially around the lakes.

Puzzlewood is a large area of woodland within the Forest of Dean, featuring a number of unusual tree and rock formations. It is believed to be an inspiration for JRR Tolkien when writing "The Lord of The Rings". As well as winding paths through the woods, there is a working farm, lots of animals, plus indoor and willow mazes.

Production Notes:
  • For the scenes in Flesh and Stone where Amy collapses and camp is made, the forest itself has a fence on the right-hand side. The production team originally wanted to remove the fencing, but the owners wouldn't allow it, so it was dressed to look like rocks for the actual episode! However, the team were allowed to remove a fence for the scenes where Amy and the soldiers peer into the light.
