THE AVENGERS: Epic (James Hill: February 1967)
Mrs. Peel is tricked into using a taxi driven by a disguised Stewart Kirby's. Mrs Peel soon realises that they are going the wrong way, but when she protests she is rendered unconscious by gas fed into her sealed compartment.

This first shot looks like the swamp on London Road near the entrance to High Cannons. The taxi is seen on London Road near the entrance to High Cannons , Shenley Road and heading up Theobald Street, so obvious options are going to be within the area defined by Theobald Street, Radlett Lane, Silver Hill, London Road, Rowley Lane, Cowley Hill/Gateshead Road and Shenley Road.

Stephen Cowin, May 2007 – “I’m pretty sure this is of the old Napsbury signal box on the Midland

Alan Field – “Although I agree the signal box does look like Napsbury, I don’t think it is. Napsbury was (apparently) famous for having three very tall signals, which would be visible in the shot. See what you think. http://www.signalbox.org/gallery/lm/napsbury.htm
