Children of The Full Moon
The lanes around Hampden were used throughout the series. In particular here is the location used inChildren of The Full Moon where Tom and Sarah's car breaks down and they decide to walk. This location is along Bryants Bottom Lane.If driving towards Hughenden Valley from Hampden it would be on the left hand side justbefore the road narrows

This shot is just past the Gate Inn
The road used for both when Tom's car loses control and also when Tom is looking for the house - Great Hampden
And this one is outside Hampden House

Hampden House was used for the interior hospital scenes and also for the scene whenJanet returns to collect their things
The tree stump which the hitchhiker is standing next to at the opening sequence is still there, atthe crossroads just outside Hampden House

The holiday cottage that the Lewis family stay in has eluded me for a long time, but all this time I should have explored Great Hampden more because its just down the road from the cottage used in Visitor From The Grave.
The road in the opening sequence is just down the hill from Hampden House. It's High St/Rignall Road
The crossroads outside Hampden House
