Hello all, I was taking a cruise from Windsor yesterday and we went past Bray Film Studios...
Seems to be all locked up & closed now, but it does have History.. the below is taken from wiki.



Bray Studios is a film and television facility at Bray, near Maidenhead, Berkshire, England. The model and miniature filming for the film Alien was shot there, as well as The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It is best known for its association with Hammer Film Productions and contains four stages, plus offices and workshops.

Hammer originally leased country houses in which to shoot films, until the company eventually purchased Down Place on the banks of the Thames near Bray. After using every room and angle in its films, it later enlarged the house into the Bray Studios of today. The last Hammer production made at Bray was The Mummy's Shroud, which wrapped on 21 October 1966. Hammer sold the studio in November, 1970. Bray Studios continues to host television, film work and band rehearsals today. Bray Studios is now under threat of redevelopment into a residential area under the current owner of the studio who has claimed there is no call for the studio any more, despite having refused a number of applications by productions to use the facilities. A pressure group is currently trying to save the studio.[1]

A photo here taken from across the river. An obvious PIR seen there and possibly more. The house next door (and is actually part of this building in a semi-detached way) is residential and live. A houseboat is also moored in the area.
