The television producers Carnival responsible for creating Downton Abbey are scheduled to return to Bampton near Oxford, for "Downton Village" filming scenes this April for two days.

Downton Abbey to returns to Bampton

In recent years most of the filming has taken place in the old quarter of Bampton specifically Church Close, Church Street and Church View. Expect these streets to be sealed off from through traffic. 

As a resident in Church Street, it now might be a good time book a holiday. The dates on the letter from Carnival (the series producers) are Thursday 24th and Friday 25th of April.

We usually have an excellent view of the filming so I’ll post some pictures during the period.

It is sometimes difficult to get any website development completed during this period with Dame Mags bagging on my door constantly demanding cups of fresh tea : )
