A new Midsomer Trail has been launched and fans can now follow in the footsteps of DCI Barnaby through the Misbourne Valley.
This new trail is unique in that it spans across five areas, and uncovers some of the best spots in the Chilterns. The River Misbourne passes through rural landscapes, historic market towns and villages packed with pretty cottages, stone churches, traditional pubs and fictional murder!
Visit Great Missenden, the home of the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre. It appeared as Shires Bank in ‘Painted in Blood’. Visit Roald Dahl’s grave in the steps of the BFG (photo 1 below)
Continue your journey to the lovely village of Little Missenden which has featured in over 13 episodes of the show. See the splendidly restored wall paintings in St John the Baptist Church.
The next stop is Amersham, arguably one of the prettiest market towns in England. Combine your visit with a trip to the delightful Amersham Museum and a pit stop in one of the many award-winning eateries in the town.
Continue on to Chalfont St. Giles, a small village of pretty cottages, pubs, manor houses, a church, village green and a duck pond – quintessential Midsomer! Visit the Cottage where Milton wrote Paradise Lost.
Chalfont St. Peter is nestled on the southern slopes of the Chiltern Hills. There is plenty to see in the village. Further afield, the Chiltern Open Air Museum, itself a filming location for multiple Midsomer episodes, Call the Midwife, Horrible Histories and Downtown Abbey to name a few. (photo 3)
