THE FULL MONTY FILMING LOCATIONS - RUSKIN PARK

For this scene we find Gerald sat with his briefcase on a park bench. Gaz, Dave and Nath find him just sitting there.

This scene was set in Ruskin Park although I'm still struggling to place these exact benches - if you can help please post below.

At Ruskin Park there are two benches at the Daniel Hill entrance but the background to the shot in the film doesn't match up for me so I'm not 100% that this are definitely the same benches in the same location

See below for examples - your help is definitely welcome on this one

In the scene we see the Blake Hotel so it there's no movie magic involved maybe these benches have been moved slightly since the Full Monty filming took place here?
Anyone know?

The pub seen in the background behind our heroes in The Full Monty is the Blake Hotel on Blake Street right opposite Ruskin Park

The above shots from The Full Monty were filmed in Ruskin Park itself down near the playground area

In the background behind our heroes you can clearly see the buildings on Daniel Hill Street

Here are those buildings on Daniel Hill Street
Opposite are the benches, and  across the corner is the Blake Hotel pub 
So basically this scene is set around this tiny area of Sheffield!

This shot of the boys walking up an extremely steep hill is Blake Street again which leads up to the benches, The Blake Hotel pub and Ruskin Park.

To achieve this shot the film makers will have used a camera low down on the pavement the boys are walking up, using an extreme zoom lens zoomed in so that the background becomes more prominent

If I get chance I'll update this with more accurate recreations for you

If you have any more info on this scene or Full Monty Filming Location let me know below
