LIVING AT HARMONY
Since the demolition of MGM Borehamwood studios in 1974, where most of "The Prisoner" was filmed, there has been much discussion as to the pinpointed whereabouts of the locations used by the crew throughout the Backlot, in particular the Harmony set (especially the tree on which Kathy's brother is hung).
For several years it was thought to be a large tree which sits in the car park of the local Toby Carvery, or alternatively a tree in nearby Niven Close. The discussion has raged for years but finally, thanks to several members of the Facebook Group "MGM Borehamwood Memories" following on from earlier research conducted by Sam Denham, Crispin Hodges, and Tony Mckay, the mystery has been solved!
Sadly, the "lynching tree" no longer exists (the site of the tree is the middle of the road "Rutherford Close"), but the Toby Tree has been discovered to have appeared in harmony elsewhere, above the Blacksmiths to be exact!
