At the start of this episode and featuring throughout is Herbie Collins' warehouse. This site was completely redeveloped into a residential area in 2000. Fortunately the Grade II listed buildings there were maintained and the corner shot of DS Morley below corresponds to the bottom right of the more recent shot, now known as Brasenose Drive. The large door is where Dave parks his van at 20m47s.
