All locations of "High Hopes" Pink Floyd's video?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i8264L8-N4&feature=related

Everybody knows it's all between Cambridge and Ely, but I'd like to locate some of the less obvious ones. Ely Cathedral and St.John's college are trivial to recognize, but what about

- house at 0:20 ?
- the patch of fens where lost of odd things happen during the video?
- the airstrip at 2:40 and 3:44 ?
- punters at 4:33 are going towards Grantchester?
- bridge at 5:47 ?

thanks!

House at 0:20 is Dave Gilmour's childhood home, down Grantchester Meadows in Newnham.

The Fens bit is near where the Divison Bell album sleeve was shot. Near Streatham, with a great view of the Ely Cathedral (the ship of the fens)

Pretty sure that the Airstrip is Bourn Airfield

Bridge at 5:47 is the one down at Newnham, near Llamma's Land.

Does anyone know the name of the actor in Pink Floyd's High Hopes video standing by the Morris Traveler who lets the balls out the back? Can't seem to find it anywhere?

I must watch this video where the actor lets his balls out of the back of Morris the Traveler ;-]
