Thought I'd mentioned this before but can't see it.

There was a scene (coach trip maybe ?) filmed at the Rabone Chesterman Arch, close by the Pomona.

Is the Arch still there, is the building still there even ?

The Bow Works is still there.

WIERD!!! Have just stumbled across this thread. I recently bought the DVD boxed set of IDKYC and was watching some episodes last night thinking 'some of those locations look familiar' hey ho, so they should, they're in good old Sheff where I lived some thirty years ago! I think the first pub I went in was the old Pomona Gardens which they then knocked down and built a place resembling a clinic. The second pub I went to was the Little Mesters, anyone remember that?

Hi all.

Picture 23 is the railway bridge with Holmes Lock in the background located in Rotherham. Close to the area called New York where the new football stadium is being built.

The locks in the next few pictures were refurbished about 20 years ago. Trees were planted and much of the existing industrial buildings have gone - Tinsley Wire and Firth Derrion.

Picture 24 is a lock at tinsley flight near to Shepcote lane.

Picture 25 is a lock at tinsley flight near to Shepcote lane.

Picture 26 is the deep lock at tinsley flight near to Shepcote lane.

Picture 27 is the deep lock at tinsley flight near to Shepcote lane.

Picture 28 is a lock at tinsley flight near to Shepcote lane.

Picture 29 is a lock at tinsley flight near to Shepcote lane.

Picture 29 is a lock at tinsley flight near to Shepcote lane.

Are these pubs featured in the series? I have seen reference to the Myrtle at Heeley but not these 2. I'd be interested if you knew which episodes they featured in.

It was Uncle Staveley who carried a cardboard box around his neck, this box carried the ashes of his soldier friend who was killed in the war, it was not a gas mask. Stephen Rea who played Brandon went on to better things but for me Uncle Mort played by Robin Bailey was brilliant, he got the Sheffield accent just right.

Uncle Staveley was played by two different actors, the second one was played by Leslie Sarony, he was an old film star and singer on the theatre circuit, I have a couple of his comic songs on my iPod. Look him up on Amazon. John Comer played Mr Brandon, he played Syd who owned the Cafe in in Last Of The Summer Wine, Liz Smith played Mrs Brandon, Liz went on to play in The Royle Family, Brandon's girlfriend was played by Anita Carey, I can't remember what she went on to do.

I watch this series on YouTube and to me it's still very funny.
