Hammer made good use of the roads in and around Great Hampden for many of the car driving scenes in the series. In particluar, the crossroads just outside the main gate of Hampden House was used in a quite a few episodes. In Carpathian Eagle it was used at the very beginning of the episode when Natalie picks her first victim. Natalie is walking towards Hampden House’s main gate as the victim’s car is seen approaching the crossroads.
You will see below that it was also used in the Charlie Boy and Two Faces of Evil episodes.
In Charlie Boy the crossroads was used when Sarah is driving her Mini at speed and also when Graham was driving at speed too.

The location used for the farm and barns at the end of the episode has been discovered by Andy Pagin, a long time forum member who by chance stumbled across the location when being diverted on a different route to work. It turns out the farm is literally yards from Hampden House.
