Series 3 - Dealing... with drugs

Post by Howard Radcliff » Fri Mar 14, 2014 1:34 am

This series 3 location is just south of Armstrong Road, Scotswood, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Screen shot A (below) shows Dennis drive the drug dealer off Whitfield Road and up ‘Pretria Street’ which now no longer exists. In the distance looking south you can see the unmistakable Scotswood Bridge crossing the Tyne River.

Taken from the same scene, screen shot C (below) illustrates a view looking north toward our drug dealer from the vantage of Dennis’s cab.

Image D (below) is taken from a similar vantage point again looking north shortly after demolition of the terrace housing. The only evidence that remains here are the lampposts, broken pathway and the two black bollards in the foreground.

Over the years, many houses throughout the area have sadly been graffitied, vandalised, set on fire and destroyed. Strange – I don’t recall Moxey visiting Scotswood in series 3!

Recently the whole site just north of Scotswood Road has been flattened to make way for a huge new housing development and improve the area. Here's an aerial view taken in 2001 with the filming location marked in red.

How times change, eh?
