Archived object 3: Filming locations
Our 50 for the future campaign uses 50 objects about the Wycombe district to show how we are proud of our past and fit for the future. We will be publishing a new object on Facebook and on this website every week.
For the latest object see our 50 for the future page.

Each object fits within one or more of our three priorities: people, place or pounds. Read the corporate plan.
Week 3: Filming locations
Proud of our past
Our district has always been popular with film and television makers looking for beautiful locations. We regularly receive requests from crews wanting to film here. Our communications team handled 38 filming requests last year.
In the past, the Vicar of Dibley was shot on location in the district, Thunderbirds on the M40, and lots of episodes of Midsomer Murders have been filmed in our area.
As well as visiting here to film, our district is a great place to live. With beautiful countryside and fast, easy connections to London, Oxford and Milton Keynes by road and rail, there are countless celebrities who choose to make Wycombe district their home. People like Fern Britton, JK, Jeremy Paxman to name but a few... and then of course, we have home grown talent and stars like Heston Blumenthal, James Corden, Howard Jones and this year's X-Factor winner, band member Leigh Anne from Little Mix.
Fit for the future
Our commitment to place is one of our 3Ps priorities. That means our policies and practices have to work towards making our district a great place to live, work and visit.
We are working to protect the greenbelt and AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) areas in the district through planning decisions we make.
We work and enhance our beautiful countryside, for example through the work of our woodland service. Our area information offices in Princes Risborough, High Wycombe and Marlow also work to promote our area to visitors, as well as helping local people find new places on their doorstep which they can explore and enjoy
You can find more information on filming in the Wycombe district on our filming in the Wycombe district page.
