A BIT OF TRIVIA

The ITV1 TV series The Bill was filmed
in and around Colliers Wood.

The fake police station, Sun Hill 

(below) was on Windsor Avenue.





Unfortunately ITV decided to
stop making the series
after 27 years!

Hollywood came to
Colliers Wood!

Sequences for "The Iron Lady", a film
starring Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep
as Margaret Thatcher (below) were
shot at the re-opened Wimbledon
Studios
in March 2011





The facility, formerly the home of The Bill,
has been refurbished and relaunched
with state-of-the-art 3D filming equipment
but it was an old House of Commons set
at the Deer Park Road complex that
drew in its biggest name to date
