Just a quick question, where were the scenes filmed for Rose and Jackie's Powell Estate?

I understand that the fictional location is Peckham in SE London, but I don't think this is actually where it was filmed. Does anybody know?

A lot of it was Cardiff, but some bits were shot on the Brandon Estate, Kennington, London

I remember stumbling across this site some time ago and found it fascinating (more for the classic series really)

Whilst I could never be sad enough to go visiting any locations I have to confess that I hope that one day I get to work near east hagbourne so I can pay a visit to see where they filmed the Android Invasion (terrible story but looks like a quaint area of the UK)

They need a special section for the Quarries.

Well I happen to visit London regularly. If I am not mistaken, that place isn't far from Oval Tube station, so I'd happily take a ten minute detour there when in the area again with some friends,

I've just had a look on Google maps. It's near Newbury so it's quite some distance outside London.

I could kick myself because I did some work for a print company in Thatcham last year and could have popped over on the way back...

Not sure if you would class the park area in "Parting Of The Ways" as the Powell Estate, but that is in Butetown, Cardiff. Last time I was there a couple of years back, the brick wall with Bad Wolf painted on it was still there..
