THE PENGE SPORTING MAN'S CLUB (INTERNAL) - THEN & NOW - Pictures by jno and Tim Newbury
MIDDLESEX & HERTS COUNTRY CLUB (NOW 'PORTMAN HALL'), OLD REDDING, HARROW WEALD, MIDDLESEX, HA3 6SH

Location found by: jno

First seen at 07m38s is the inside of Tony Benson's club 'The Penge Sporting Man's Club'. Sadly this location was torn down in the 1990s and replaced by what is now the Portman Hall apartments. The club was all on one level with the main dance floor sunk by about a metre. The only stairs went up to the mezzanine floor which had its own smaller dance floor, bar and a balcony. From here you could look down on the main part of the club and this was often used as a VIP area.
