Turville - A Much Used Film Location - 1 by 

Fuji Fs100




Turville is a village and civil parish within Wycombe district in Buckinghamshire, England. It is located in the Chiltern Hills, about five miles west of High Wycombe and five miles north of Henley-on-Thames. As Henley-on-Thames is Turville’s Post Town, the village is postally in Oxfordshire. The village name is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means ‘dry field’. It was recorded in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 796 as TThe village was the principal location of the popular sitcom, The Vicar of Dibley. Whilst many of the scenes were performed live in the BBC Television Centre in front of a live studio audience, the scenes shot outdoors were filmed in Turville. In the series the church of St Mary the Virgin was renamed “St Barnabus”

The 1942 Ealing Studios film Went the Day Well? in which German paratroopers invade a small English village, was filmed in Turville, as were many of the scenes from the 1963 comedy film Father Came Too!. Additionally many of the outdoor scenes of television show Goodnight Mr Tom was filmed in Turville, as were the dream scene in Bride and Prejudice. Scenes have also been shot in the village for Midsomer Murders, Lewis, Marple, the 2008 Christmas special of Jonathan Creek, the British drama An Education, and the 2009 BBC adaptation of The Day Of The Triffids. Cobstone Windmill in the neighbouring parish of Ibstone, used in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, overlooks the village of Turville
