Heaven's Above

Well, well, thoroughly stumped, foxed and bamjaxed!

For the first time, ReelStreets hasn't a single lead to the locations of this film.

Any clues anyone?

I was interested to find your site as I have been researching filming locations for both Taste of Honey (I am Shelaigh Delaney's niece)

..................who was this lady?

..... and Yanks.

..........OK, what have you found that you'd like to share with us?

...... There appears to be no record of the stately home used in the film that Vanessa Redgrave lived in

..........Redgrave lived in a film? If so, which film?

and I wonder whether you can help me with this.

.........I'm confused, but perhaps our viewers might be able to help, we'll blog your letter

Best wishes

John Tunstill


In the film 'Yanks' - Vanessa Redgrave played 'Helen' and she lived in a large home (probably a stately home) - there doesn't appear to be any record of where this location was. Perhaps your viewers could help.

Wonderful stuff, all centered around Tuffnel Park in North London.

Coming soon to a screen near you.

Many thanks David.

bp054 and bp055: Amberley Road (now Barwood Close), houses demolished.

bp066: I think this is looking towards Senior Road, off Lord’s Hill Road.
