First seen at 06m14s, a lot of this episode is filmed here. Initially Arthur and Terry park at the rear where you can clearly see the steeple of Christ The Saviour Parish Church in the background.

After Sudbury and Rita ask for Arthur and Terry's help, they go back down to the street where you can clearly see Ryman's The Stationer in the background. Much has changed at this location, but the Ryman shop is still visible (just) behind the lamppost.
