The Omen.....in the park
The church just off the park was uses in 'The Omen'.
Location: Bishop's Park Road, Hammersmith & Fulham, SW6
Description: Just off the end of Putney Bridge, this park and specifically the church just off it - was the backdrop for some of 'The Omen's' more sinister and frightening scenes - in 1976. And how in particular...when a man of the cloth is impaled by a lighting rod.
