23 Meteor Street
Back in April I crossed the first thing off of my
list! I'm a big film and TV fan, and have always had a huge fascination with finding out about the goings on
behind the scenes
. I absolutely love delving into the production process and trivia of how a movie or show came to be; sometimes even more so than the actual finished product itself. One location I've been desperate to visit for such a long time is the house featured in the ever so brilliant

It's also strange to think how some people will have done the same as me - stopped to appreciate and take photos of a place they feel they know so well - whilst others have unknowingly walked on by.
We hung around long enough to snap some photos of and in front of the building, before thinking it was time to make a move. It's easy to forget this is actually someone's home! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing a film location in the flesh though and have plans to visit more. The next being somewhere in Crouch End. Any guesses for what it is or which film it might have appeared in?
