    Most people don't realise that Edge of the World was actually shot at the Gainsborough Studios in Islington...

    Isn't it still marked Here be dragons to the north of Islington on maps?

    Being a proud South Londoner, my Dad used to refer to anywhere north of the border (the Thames) as "It's all North Thames gas board up there". Even if he was referring to Yorkshire, or Scotland

    Hi Steve & Associates,



    Great location info (Been to all these locations already and didn`t even know it) Been going up to Orkney now for the past 13 years, in fact because of my Shetland/Foula trip I will give Orkney a miss this year.



    Steve C. Yes! it was the revised book to which I refer, it gives locations by a local research group, unlike the original.



    As for the `EOTW` Islington thing, well, I don`t think they could fit Islington on Foula.



    Regards.

    Dave.

    P.S. I think that the location research they did was the locations used in Clouston's original story, not the locations used in the film
