Buy content through ScooptWords Welcome to Avengerland

According to this site, Avengerland is "the area within half an hour's drive of the Borehamwood and Pinewood film studios" which provided many of the locations for UK television programmes. Programmes such as as The Prisoner, The Avengers, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) and many others seemed to inhabit a landscape made of odd, syphilitic stately homes, cold looking country roads and modernist shopping centres, factories and offices all linked by endless motorways...

If you have a flick through this site, you'll find a landscape so familiar, that other England, the England of secret bases, strange eccentics and alien invasions... For many, this other world was more real and more accessible than the actual landscape.
