The Last Grenade - Stanley Baker (1970) - Mai Po, Yuen Long

Sticking with the far reaches of the New Territories and we catch a brief glimpse of some of the wet lands around the Mai Po Marsh area. The area is famous for its almost complete coverage of shallow ponds that were once part of the fish farming industry. There is a cluster of areas here: Nam Sang Wai, Lut Chau, Tai Sang Wai and Mai Po, that are all similar in terrain so it's a bit difficult tracking down the exact spot used in the film.

The hills in the background of the screencap are Ki Lun Shan (a.k.a Haddon/Hadden Hill) on the left and Tai Lo Tin centre screen (a.k.a Snowden) with the north slope of Kai Kung Leng on the right hand side.
