The filmmakers have carefully positioned the camera at an angle to capture the maximum number of people as they are funnelled around the corner entrance to the church in the Staffordshire town of Hanley. The church itself is barely visible in the background, making it difficult to identify which of Hanley's churches it is - though the shop front in the foreground may offer a clue.

People, and more people
Not the best of Mitchell & Kenyon as the Chruch is not visible and this is all about showing the people because people are the ones paying to see themselves on screen. Still, there are a lot of people, and the angle is good to make full use of the stream of churchgoers walking down the street.
