Ft St Angelo from Senglea
The rear of Ft St Angelo, filmed from the quayside at Senglea. You can clearly see the viaduct from Birgu to St Angelo which did not exist in Lymond's time, and which is being demolished (the right hand end has already gone). In front of the viaduct is a low bridge over the entrance to the canal.
