Finally found Lower Moat Manor !
After many years of wondering where on earth this could be I have discovered the whereabouts of the location used for Lower Moat Manor. Its Scottswood Hill just outside Thame. Go here to have a look
Shenley's estate agency was a shop in Great Missenden, near the train station. The shop is now a gentelmens barbers and the shop next door is an estate agents - I wonder if they know !
Greenham Close, London SE1 was the location of the block of flats being demolished (They actually have been). Thanks to Anthony McKay for spotting this location.
The hospital scenes were filmed in Chesham Cottage Hospital (now derelict). Thanks to Moyb Ullah for letting me know about this location. He found it in a shooting script for the episode that he aquired on Ebay.
The interior shots of Lower Moat Manor were filmed in the Main Hall of Hampden House (thanks to Andy Pagin for confirmation).
