Brenda has arranged to meet Arthur at Nottingham Castle to tell him she is pregnant and wants to have an abortion.
Arthur waits at Nottingham Castle for Brenda's arrival. The view has changed considerably now that the power station no longer exists, and the new Inland Revenue buildings now occupy the foreground.
The corner shop where Arthur insults 'Old Ma Bull' is now the front garden of a house! The shop stood on the corner of Salisbury Street and Cobden Street in Nottingham. The white building on Cobden Street can be seen in both shots.
Arthur and Doreen leave the Savoy cinema on Derby Road in Nottingham. The cinema has been modernised since the film was made. I am standing in the identical place to where Shirley Anne Field is in this screencap.
Jack arrives back home after his Saturday night away with his son. He is on Hartley Road, Nottingham, about to turn into Norton Street where he lives with Brenda. My photo was taken on a Sunday, as Ilkeston Road is normally far too busy to take a photo like this!
The location for Brenda and Jack's house was 198 Norton Street, Nottingham, a street that has completely changed beyond recognition.
Arthur and Bert cycle down to the canal to do a spot of fishing. Here, they are crossing Clayton's Bridge which crosses the Nottingham canal on Lenton Lane. It is no longer possible to cycle down to the canal at this point. The fishing scenes in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning were not filmed in Nottingham, however.
Arthur runs for a bus on Derby Road in Nottingham. I am standing in the same place, and very little seems to have changed since the scene was filmed in 1960.
Arthur has just caught his bus and is heading down Derby Road into Nottingham's city centre.
This is an incredible reminder of how much parts of Nottingham have changed, and how important the film Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is in recording it. Arthur and Brenda are walking along Willoughby Street to Aunt Ada's house. Believe it or not, I am standing in exactly the same place!! The whole area was demolished, the road direction changed and Willoughby Street renamed Park Street.
In 2008, my dad and I visited some of the locations used in the film Saturday Night and Sunday Morning. Some locations had changed completely, so it was necessary to use a large scale ordnance survey street plans to take measurements which enabled me to stand in the same place as in the film. For example it was possible to calculate the exact spot on Salisbury Street where 'Old Ma Bull' leant against the wall, although nothing of the original buildings remain there.
The opening credits of Saturday Night and Sunday Morning show the Raleigh cycle workers going home along Faraday Road. They have just reached the junction with Cycle Road. All of the old Raleigh buildings seen in the film have now been replaced by modern housing, but the old buildings on the right still remain, although the two shops are now houses.
Arthur takes Aunt Ada's son to buy sweets at the shop on the corner of Salisbury Street and Cobden Street in Nottingham.
Arthur rides along Salisbury Street to the back entrance to Beaconsfield Terrace - the front entrance to this cul-de-sac can be seen to the left of the lamp post. The Sillitoe family lived at No.5 Beaconsfield Terrace, the house that was used in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.
Using a large-scale ordnance survey map, and careful measurements, it was possible to work out the exact location of the entrance to the back of the houses on Beaconsfield Terrace, where 'Old Ma Bull' stood, and was continually taunted by Arthur.
After being spotted with Brenda at Nottingham's Goose Fair, Arthur is attacked and severely beaten by Jack's brother and his pal who are both soldiers. This scene was filmed in Battersea at the side of The British Flag public house.
Arthur and Bert walk away from the incident where the drunk smashes the shop window. Again, the location is Culvert Street in Battersea.
The scene where the drunk smashes the shop window was filmed on the corner of Sheepcote Lane and Culvert Street in Battersea, opposite The British Flag public house. This section of Sheepcote Lane no longer exists, and a block of flats now stands on the site.
A drunken man crosses the road and then throws his beer glass at a shop window. The public house in the background is The British Flag on the corner of Sheepcote Lane and Culvert Street in Battersea, South London.
A newspaper shot of the crew filming Saturday Night and Sunday Morning at the rear of Beaconsfield Terrace, off Salisbury Street, Nottingham. Standing in stark contrast is the same view taken in 2008.
This location is on Derby Road, Nottingham at its junction with Park Street (known as Willoughby Street when Saturday Night and Sunday Morning was being filmed). Brenda is pregnant, and is waiting to visit Arthur's Aunt Ada to see if she can arrange a 'back street' abortion.
