Near the beginning of the episode, we see Louisa on a bicycle riding down Fore Street and coming up
along the side of The Mote and toward the Platt.  She continues past the Platt and leaves her bicycle at
the entrance to the Fish Cellars.  As she steps into the entrance to the Fish Cellars, she sees Roger and
they have a discussion about his finances while they're making their seafood choices.  They are also
hearing a live radio broadcast where Martin is being introduced to the village on Radio Portwenn.
.
.
.
.
.
Louisa is walking up Roscarrock Hill and stops to talk to Martin as he is washing his
car.  The two parking spaces that belong to the surgery in the show actually belong
to The White House which is located next to the cottage used as the surgery.

You can see a car parked in that spot in the picture below which was taken
from across the harbour.
.
.
.
.
.
Martin walks up the Platt
and Bert talks him into
sitting on the bench for
a chat.

This is right by the windows
of the holiday let called
"Tides Reach".
.
.
.
As Martin leaves the Chemist he is stopped in the
street by Mrs Braithwaite to talk about her daughter
Emily's illness.  (This is a wink to Martin's wife,
Philippa Braithwaite and their daughter, Emily.)  
This conversation takes place just outside the shop
called "Secrets" that is located at the corner of
Fore Street and Back Hill.

Martin spots Roger while leaving grocer
.
It took a long time to find this location, but when
Janet Setness, Connie Jefferson and Caroline
Stoebuck were in Port Isaac in May of 2015 they
were able to determine the location.

This is the Wadebridge Leisure Centre. Richard
and Sam were kind enough to show them around
and talk about their experiences with the filming.  
They even moved the high chair that Martin stood
on so that Caroline could recreate Martin's climb
up to coerce the children out of the pool.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
As Martin leaves the grocers, he is heckled by
several of the villagers because of his statements
regarding the village's water supply.

This was filmed at the Liberal Club on Fore St, which
is near the corner of Back Hill and directly across
from the school.  This building has been used as
the village grocers for the entire run of the show.
.
.
.
.
This was filmed in the Camelford One Stop Shop
Council Offices in Camelford.

This building was formerly the primary school.
.
.
.
.
.
They were walking
on the Southwest
Coast Path right at
the top of the
harbour.

The window you see
behind Roger is on
the cottage circled
below.
.
.
.
.
The Mailbox is on the side of the
building that houses the Boat House
Stores on Fore Street.
.
As Martin is leaving the grocer on Fore St, he
looks across the street to the school and spots
Roger through the window.  Roger is at the
piano with students surrounding him as he is
teaching them music appreciation.

The Surgery is circled in
yellow and the parking
spaces circled in red.

The equipment room here was also
used for the scene in the episode.
.
.
.
.

I wasn't able to determine if the interior scene was shot in this
building.
.
Martin & Louisa meet on Platt
.
.
.
.
Martin and Louisa meet on the edge of The Platt for their "date" at the pub.  The walk up toward Fore Street
and turn left into the doorway that is meant to go into the pub.  This doorway is actually the entrance to a
holiday let called "Tides Reach", but it is often used as the fictional entrance to the pub.  You can see the
aquarium behind them that is located at the other end of The Platt.  In the picture at the bottom, you can see
in red where they meet and the route they take to the pub.  Circled in blue is the actual pub (The Golden Lion)
where the interiors were filmed in the next scene.
.

It's obvious that the interior of this scene was not
actually filmed inside the Old School Hotel.  (The
scenes from Episode 1 of Martin looking at
Louisa through these windows WAS shot into
the restaurant of this building.)

In the previous scene of the music appreciation
class, there are windows on the other wall that do
not match any of the windows in this building.
