Spearhead in Hong Kong - Stafford Gordon (1981) - Man Kam To, Sheung Shui
Following on from this earlier post showing off a bit of the terrain around Man Kam To, there is also the following couple of images from the same episode. I didn't post them earlier because I wasn't 100% sure of the location but I'm now satisfied that the first image is of the police post at Man Kam To. The image is looking in a south(ish) direction with Sandy Ridge in the background. The road going up the hill at the back leads up to a helipad. The second picture shows the road that leads to the police post (if you drive to the left) and a long building at the corner of the road where it drops down the hill towards Man Kam To. It's hard to believe that the flat area in the background (including the white lattice type building structure) is now the fully developed control area for the Man Kam To crossing. Muk Wu village can be seen in the far distance (top left).
