Houses On 70's Bbc 2 Programme.

Recommended Posts

On the first in the new BBC2 series a view of a steep hill with a gas tower was shown-less than 10 minutes in.Does anyone know if this was Neepsend?

That's the one Steve.Is it Sheffield? I know it could be anywhere but it does seem possible.

There is a possibility that the clip was taken from a BBC play or documentary,

could be Burgoyne Road Sheffield, personally I would guess at Blackburn in Lancashire.

This image/article came up in a Google search for 'gasometers', and the houses looked to be the same sort of style as the ones in the TV series, and that is what lead me to Blackburn.

Dont think it's Neepsend.My granny lived in Hoyland Road and as I can remember the gas tanks were practically in her back yard.If it were them,the pics must have been taken from up Parkwood springs,but I don't think it is.
