    This is entirely from memory and I may well be quite wrong - but I seem to recall some exterior scenes with Michael Denison walking past a distinctive multi-arched market hall in the background?

    If I've got the correct film then that is Chipping Campden in Gloucestershire one of the prettiest towns in the Cotswolds

    I can confirm, as with Rob Compton, that the location town was Chipping Campden. This confirmation, from Michael Denison himself. Friends of mine attended a private lunch back in 1998, at which both he and Dulcie Gray were to attend also. So prior, I asked my friends if they could pose the question of location, during the course of lunch. They duly did, and I was very pleased at the incredibly tenuous connection. He passed away a few weeks later.

    The Bus Garage that was used as 'Larborough and District' was actually the London Transport Garage at St Albans, in the shot of him walking across the forecourt is an experimental bus that only operated there for about 6 months.
