Starring: Jack McMullen and Rita Tushingham
The friendship between two teenage boys living in a seaside town is torn apart by the arrival of a mysterious young girl
This drama was largely filmed in Worthing, West Sussex, and features a ride on an unusual train in the form of the 10¼in-gauge Diddly’s Miniature Railway in Brooklands Park, East Worthing. The railway opened as a normal miniature gauge tourist ride in 1965, but was later marketed as the Diddly Miniature Railway with two child-like trains operating called Diddly Dum and Diddly Dee. The line closed in 2018 after the local authority released its ‘masterplan’ for the park, confirming there was no place for the railway. There are also more conventional scenes filmed outside Worthing station and Finsbury Park Underground station in London, but little of either is actually seen.
