Martin Baker played a crucial part in the Titan landing. They manufactured the descent control equipment and parachute.

Lots of Chalfontites have, and still do, worked there

 I do know that the private flats called "Green Tiles" by the Total garage were built by Alexander Korda for his workers at Denham Film Studios. He also had special trains running London - Denham just to bring in workers each morning.

I doubt the flats story is true . Remember, they are near the club house not the factory.
