Film Locations Made Famous

The english countryside is full of wonderful locations for films; some of which have brought a touch of magic to productions, and others which have sometimes become places of pilgrimage [as in the case if Withnail and I], made famous thanks to their featuring in a scene. Drop an e-mail if you find a mistake or know of other locations which should be added.

We're thinking of adding a page of countryside and small town locations available for hire on the website. Please e-mail if you have a property that you would like included.
