One of my all-time favourite films, McVicar directed by Tom Clegg, starring Roger Daltrey. The railway bridge where he hides out after his escape is on Norden Road in Maidenhead.

 

THEN - Polo/Tartan posters, where McVicar hides behind.

NOW – no posters remain on the billboard now.

THEN - Daltrey rings up his mate for help.

NOW - Sadly the phone box is no longer there.

THEN – McVicar's viewpoint from behind the billboard, overlooking Norden Road

NOW – Not much has changed on this street
