Mother Natures Son
Only Fools And Horses Filming Locations Mother Natures Son revealed. In Mother’s Natures Son, Del Boy finds out he has inherited Granddad’s old allotment, including his old shed and a vast amount of rubbish that has been dumped. He quickly recruits the help of Denzil and Trigger to help clean up to contaminated site.
During a shopping trip with Rodney, Del meets Miles, a self made millionaire who owns a chain of Garden Centre’s and food store’s called ‘Nature’s Way’. As usual, the word millionaire appeals to Del and he concocts a plan to find Peckham’s only natural spring on his new allotment.
Using a few typical Del trick’s he ends up selling ‘Peckham Spring’ packaged as coming from Peckham’s natural spring but in reality coming from the tap in Del Boy’s kitchen. A great episode and here are some of the filming locations used.
Garden Centre, Nature’s Way
Swains Garden Centre in Henfield, was used as the location for Nature’s Way. Both internal and external shots were filmed on location. Swains Garden Cenre is still open today and certainly worth a visit. It has recently increased in size but still very recognizable by its pitched roof and grounds.
Filming Location: Swains – Brighton Rd, Woodmancote, Henfield BN5 9RP
Grandad’s Allotment – Filming Location
In the episode Natal Road Allotments, Brighton were used as the location of Grandad’s allotment. By 1992 when this episode aired the show was at the height of its popularity. As a result more and more external shots were being filmed away from London.
Filming Location: Natal Road Allotments, Natal Road, Brighton BN2 4BN
The Grand Hotel Brighton
At the end of the episode, Del, Rodney and family’s go to stay at the seaside. They stayed at The Grand Hotel, Brighton. A short drive from Grandad’s Allotment filming location.
Filming Location: The Grand Hotel, 97-99 Kings Rd, Brighton BN1 2FW
