Almost nothing of the buildings at Swansea in the "worker's section" used in the movie remains. Although the production used explosions and live ammunition, the buildings largely remained intact until the year 2000. The main cause of the buildings' demise was the removal of the wooden roofs for firewood, and not anything that was done during this production.
