Ken's location tours

Ken Cross has devoted an enormous amount of time and energy to researching, photographing and cataloguing the locations used in filming The League of Gentlemen all over the country. He probably knows more than anyone else apart from the location managers.
He is willing, by arrangement, to provide conducted walking or car tours for small groups. Details here.
