Nowhere Boy brings the 1950s to Pinner

This morning the High Street of Pinner was intermittently closed off for filming around the Queen’s Head pub. Normally filming is rather anonymous but on this occasion the informative signage around the area declared this was for a film called Nowhere Boy. A quick search of IMDB revealed this to be a film about the childhood of John Lennon.

IMDB links to a Digitalspy article from last Wednesday announcing filming to have begun, however although filming locations at Ealing Studios, Blackpool and, naturally, Liverpool, no mention is given to Pinner, but it was here they were this very morning.

Although our curiousity did not extend to giving the scene more than a cursory glance, a visit to Pinner’s Sunday Farmers’ Market revealed a number of 1950s props around and about, awaiting to be packed away as the filming had concluded by then. These included bikes, a pram and a fine old phone box:
