Used to go to Walnut tree walk school, and played all our official school football matches at Bishops Park. Have a vivid memory of walking down that Alley fully kitted up, screw-in studs clacking away as we marched towards the pitch singing songs of encouragement!
Also I remember going secret Conker picking through a loose plank in the fence that sectioned off Lambeth Palace grounds. We used to be terrified of getting caught, but everyone knew the best Conkers were over there. LOOOL
One memory I just remembered, is when me and my best friend used to climb over the embankment after school, and climb down on the moulding of the Lion that had a ring in its' mouth, and jump down onto the beach of the Thames when the tide was out. I must've been 9 or 10, and my mum never knew anything about it! Would've got such a wholloping if she ever found out!… LOOL… Great days.

I went to St Marys Nursery School, Then Holy Trinity Primary School. Played in the Market, the local Bombsite and the Park in the film.
Perhaps the title of the film should be renamed to reflect the area in which it was taken.
"Lambeth Palace and surrounding area."
"North Lambeth area from Lambeth Bridge to Pratt Street"
