"The Avengers" inhabited an extraordinary landscrape with only a tenuous connection to the realities of 60s and 70s England - a landscape filled with mad scientists, killer robots, giant rats and diabolical master minds. Filmed in a variety of locations in England, France and Canada, many of the settings are easily accessible and remain virtually unchanged decades later.
The Avengers on Location, by author Chris Bentley, is an essential guide to the locations seen in the filmed episodes of the "The Avengers" and "The New Avengers" produced by Albert Fennell and Brian Clemens between 1964 and 1977, a gazetteer of over 500 strangely familiar stately homes, pubs, hotels, thatched cottages, hedge-lined country roads and typically English villages.
Illustrated with over 600 photographs, each entry details the histories of the key locations, how to find them and what changes have taken place over the years since their television appearances.
