Taste of Honey

Hi - I'm a new member and I'm pretty sure the gas works you can see in A Taste Of Honey (TOH16) is Bradford Gasworks in Manchester.
The photo I have sent is from a different angle and shows ...from consultation with my dad...All Souls Church - it's technically Ancoats (Every Street). In the film, the back of the church is on the far left of the still. Also see the thin pipe/chimney on the side of the tower, on the modern photo slightly obscured by the church.
Incidentally the main white tower was knocked down in 2002 for the land clearance of the Commenwealth Games.
Great website by the way - cheers
