Hi guys

After watching both Hidden and hidden 2 on Iplayer and really enjoying them both I would like to know if anybody knows where the petrol station is on the second series.

I recognise most of the places but this one has got me and have drawn a black on the net .

Paul

Any help?

"Maes Padarn in Llanberis (Snowdonia) is the backdrop for several scenes. Dylan Harris' workplace is set at the Northern Welsh Quarries in Blaenau Ffestiniog. The service station is actually Eric Jones cafe outside Tremadog."

The service station you mention is the one in the first series not the second this is the one that is baffling me I have read all the links you guys have sent me there is lots of info on the first series but very little on the second

I've been looking for one but not found one yet. there's mention of it at https://www.thebmc.co.uk/for-sale-well-known-climbing-cafe.

I remember the filling station from occasionally climbing at Tremadoc in the 1960s.

Yes thats the one in the first series but not the second series.

I have an idea guys either watch or flick through the second series ( its GOOD ) and see if any of you guys recognise it , its on BBC IPlayer at the moment
