The tower block used as the location for Only Fools and Horses - note: not actually in Peckham - is being torn down in a regeneration project. The South Acton estate has been used for filming Welcome to Sarajevo and next year's Brighton Rock as well as Del Boy and Rodney's home, but from 2011 Nelson Mandela House (known to locals as Harlech Tower) will be no more. We see no cause to lament its passing if it means residents get a better quality of life. We'd even hope it meant the end of Only Fools retreads, but they seem to have relocated to Greenwich instead.
