In 2012 the BBC made an initial series of Father Brown, based on G. K. Chesterton’s fictional detective, using Blockley church and vicarage as their location.
With a worldwide audience, the programme has been a great success, and brings visitors from around the globe to our church and village.
Father Brown has now completed five series, filmed in the Church and in and around Blockley and other local villages. A sixth series started filming at the end of April.
Dana, our Vicar also made her mark by being included in scenes as an 'extra'. Father Brown appeared most delighted with her performance!
The latest series of Father Brown airs in early January 2018.
