    Just to let you know, the start of the film shows the Horsham Town Hall, where Haigh had his first appearance after his arrest, in front of magistrates, after the Crawley road sign is shown, more of the Town Hall then Horsham Police Station, in Barttelot Road 1894-1973, where Haigh was held in custody in Cell 2, prior to attending the Magistrate Court in the Town Hall. After which the full trial was held at Lewes Assizes. The following site in the film, 'the builder's yard' is Leopald Road where Haigh had his Workshop and disposed of his final victims in Barrels of Acid, before tipping the remaining sludge outside the Workshop. The Police are searching for evidence in front of the Workshop, evidence which they found. The rest of the film flips between scenes in both Crawley and Horsham.
