Bentley Productions, the company responsible for creating the popular Midsomer Murders TV drama, has notified us that they will be filming another episode of the programme in Haddenham this month. Last time Haddenham was re-christened as 'Midsomer Oaks'. We will be watching with interest to see what our new moniker will be this time round!
Exterior scenes are being shot in Station Road, Church End and the southern end of Churchway, and we understand that the filming will take place from Wednesday 8th June until Friday 10th June, with an additional one-day shoot taking place on Friday 17th June.
The company has informed immediate residents in those roads, requesting the clearance of roadside parking and making suitable arrangements for temporary road closures during the days of filming.
Traffic movements will only be held up for a few minutes at a time — i.e., when specific filming is taking place.
The anticipated filming schedule is subject to change depending on technical or weather-related factors, but the outline intentions are as follows:
|Wednesday 8th June||13:30-midnight||Station Road|
|Thursday 9th June||13:00-23:30||Church End & Churchway|
|Friday 10th June||11:30-22:00||Church End & Station Road|
|Friday 17th June||08:00-19:00||Station Road & Church End|
Residents are requested to exercise tolerance of these short periods of inconvenience, please.
If you foresee any problems or have any queries, you are welcome to get in contact with the location manager, Andrew Henstock on 07773 733321 or his location assistant, James Doyle on 07795 115819.
