High Rise Block In ‘Only Fools And Horses’ Could be Demolished

Only Fools And Horses

David Jason says it would be a shame if the high-rise block featured in “Only Fools And Horses” is demolished.

There are plans to knock down Harlech Tower in west London – which was used to portray Del Boy’s home in the cult sitcom.

The 78-year-old told The Sun it was “great”, and it should be a listed building.


He said: “Of course I think it should be a listed building. What a shame. But they are not going to listen to me, are they?

“It was a proper block of flats and it was of its time, which was fine and is probably why we used it. So that is why we used it. It was great.”

Its seventh regular series aired in 1991 but David Jason and Lyndhurst reprised their roles as Del Boy and Rodney for a 2014 Sport Relief special starring David Beckham.

Despite Harlech Tower being in Acton, Only Fools took place 13 miles away in Peckham, south-east London.
