Description: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a 2011 English-language espionage film directed by Tomas Alfredson, from a screenplay written by Bridget O'Connor and Peter Straughan based on the 1974 novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John le Carre.

Set in London in the 1970s, the story follows the hunt for a Soviet double agent at the top of the British secret service.

The film stars Gary Oldman as George Smiley, and co-stars Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, Toby Jones, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kathy Burke and Ciaran Hinds.

And so to this location - the 'Empress Coach Works' site in Corbridge Crescent - it was used as the Merlin safe house in the film, and which Smiley uses to catch the 'Mole'.
