Can anyone help identify the locations in the two attached photos please?
They were used in the film 'The Reckoning' which was made in 1969/1970 starring Nicol Williamson.
One of them shows a street sign - but I can't read it.I have heard that it was filmed around the Daisy Grove area but not sure.Does anyone recognise it - or the tower block in the background - is that still there?
The other shows a church which I'm guessing has been demolished - does anyone recognise it?
Thanks for any help

I think the first picture may be Everton. I've seen a similar picture in a Merseyside History book, showing the steep hill with the terraced houses. No multi-story flats though

The first one does look like Tranmere. The flats look like Hadlow Gardens etc.

Don't recognise either of the pictures The 2nd pic does look like Liscard Congregational Church that stood on Rake Lane but there is a building spire to the left in the picture that doesn't fit anything that was there before.

Haven't got a clue where those photo's are and am not sure they are Wirral at all.

I did watch some of this film being made. They shot a scene at a house in Seacombe more or less opposite Hector Jacksons scrap yard.

I saw the film years ago and recognised that bit. He was supposed to have come home from somewhere and his "mother" opened the door and hugged him. Must have been all of ten seconds but took hours to film.

I would have thought it was earlier than 1969 but certainly between 1966 and 1969.

Just looked at film locations website and they say it was just called "Reckoning" and released in 1970. There is another film part filmed in Liverpool called "The Reckoning" with Stanley Baxter in it. That was 1958.

Edit. Can't find that at all and think they are mixing up Violent Playground starring Stanley Baxter. Moral, don't believe all you read on the web. Apologies for muddying the waters.

The road is Havelock St in Liverpool, the tower block is Seacombe towers.

"Seacombe Towers" was in Everton and has been demolished.

Thanks for all your replies especially Silverback identifying Havelock Street.From your info I have now also identified the church as St George's in Northumberland Terrace/Grecian Terrace in Everton.
Does Helles know what street Hector Jacksons scrap yard was in ?
It looks like they switched between shots of Everton and Seacombe/Wallsey in the film.There is another scene which was shot at the King Street petrol station and a shot of Nicol Williamson crossing one of the 4 bridges.

Thanks again Silverback - that fits in with Daisy Grove which ran down from Jersey street to Wheatland Lane just near the Pub(I have an old street map).I got the Daisy Grove info from a book about Wallasey called 'Almost an Island'
I've attached a pic of the scene Helles described of Nicol Williamson and his 'mother' at the door.

One last request from this film - please see attached photo.It is supposed to be in Wallasey near Daisy Grove etc - but I now know some shots were of Everton.Looks as if it could be a church possibly - it's used in the film as a doctor's surgery.
Can anyone help?
