A PUB that once featured in the classic British film Genevieve has been bulldozed for five new homes.

Hedgerley pub The One Pin Inn will soon be replaced by five “traditional style houses”.

In 1953 comedy two couples enter their vintage cars – one of them a 1904 Darracq named Genevieve – in the London to Brighton car race.

Most of the race was shot on roads around Pinewood Studios and the couples stop for a “hair of the dog” at the old One Pin Lane pub.

Actors John Gregson and Dinah Sheridan are also filmed in Collinswood Road, in Hedgerley, and Common Road, Fulmer, which provided stretches of country road for the race.

The news saddened Don Brockway, a fan of the film who turned the rally into reality in 2002 with a vintage car tour of all the film's locations.

He said: “What terrible news – I'm glad that I had the chance to visit The One Pin for a pint or two.”

The building dates from around 1800 and records show it was called The One Pin Inn since at least 1839.

An attempt was made to have the building listed but English Heritage said it had "insufficient surviving fabric" and had been "too altered" to be listed.

The plans were permitted by South Bucks District Council in October and developers Oakford Homes aims to start building work in the first half of this year.

Oakford Homes was unavailable for comment.
