Man in the Moon

The Station in Man in the Moon could be Taplow,Bucks.
Exteriors were filmed up the road at the Jolly Woodman Pub Littleworth Common.

Is this the same Jolly Woodman used in Genevieve? But at Burnham, Slough, Bucks?

Yes,the very same Pub. A few years ago I popped in for a pint,on the walls were photos of Kenneth More taken in the car park with the film crew. Taplow is the nearest rail station, about 1.5 miles away.
The pub stands on Taplow Common Road and is about equi-distant between Burnham and Beaconsfield a very picturesque Route.
I was born and bred in Slough (for my sins) and know the area well.
In 1954 after leaving School I applied for a job at the nearby Pinewood Studios as a runner,but to no avail.I landed up as a Projectionist,at the Ambassador Cinema in Slough.
By the way John, Slough was tranferred to Berkshire in the 1970s shake up.
All the best to you,and your great site.
