Hammer Film Productions

Hi John,
Just discovered your site on film locations and I think I'll be able to solve numerous locations your unsure of.

I edited and published Dark Terrors, a magazine dedicated to Hammer Film Productions, for ten years and have extensive knowledge of the companies films and the locations they used.

The Anniversary (produced by Hammer in 1967) is one location I can clear up.
This is not a real building site but a set built on the Elstree Studios lot.
Filming took place on the set on 7 July 1967 under the direction of Roy Ward Baker. Hammer gave me the complete run of Daily Progress Sheets for this film which details all locations etc. I have such material on numerous other films and will be in touch when I've got more info for you.
Best wishes,
Mike murphy
