Studio Plan around 1980

Many thanks to Anthony McKay from the AVENGERLAND site.
Anyone interested in the history of the Elstree Studios should definitely visit this site.

Only a few buildings from around 1980 remain.
The reception building, Studio 7, 8 and 9, The White House, a building marked on the floor plan as ‘Power House’.

The Enigma building, The Plaster shop building (K).
Furthermore, the work and storage shops at the back of the site (F).

The big secret is where Durkin’s Service Station is located?
It must be on the Elstree property. (see Where’s Durkin’s?)
In the scene it looks like an existing building. Can also be seen in Vivian’s documentary, when they are working with snow.

If anyone knows anything about this, please let me know in the comments below.

  1. I wonder if any of the interiors that were created in the office buildings, still have any resemblance to layouts from the film? I’m working there next week so will definitely try to find out.
