Follow in the footsteps of the Midsomer Murders team along the Misbourne Valley including picturesque locations in Great Missenden, Little Missenden, Amersham & more, as Susan Bosher explains
The River Misbourne wends its way through quintessentially English countryside and historic market towns and villages, packed with pretty cottages, stone churches, traditional pubs and ideal filming locations!
Midsomer on the Misbourne is a Midsomer Murders inspired self-guided locations trail that highlights filming locations and places of interest in Great Missenden, Little Missenden, Amersham and the Chalfonts.
To see it all, visitors can stay a few days in a real piece of English history – a cottage with an inglenook fireplace, a barn on a farm, a 16th-century coaching inn the oldest house in the village or in a filming location itself.
Amersham is used as a location in numerous Midsomer episodes. It also represents the perfect place to live in Midwich Cuckoos, the perfect place to stay in Four Weddings & a Funeral and the perfect Cornish fishing village in My Cousin Rachel. The Midsomer Murders & More walk starts at Amersham station, through classic beech woods and rolling fields to Old Amersham. You’ll stroll beside the Misbourne before turning up the hill, and passing the modernist house High & Over which has been used many times as a film location.
“I love the natural beauty of the Chilterns,” says Susan Bosher who leads walks along with Martin Pounce who also lives in Amersham. “I’m grateful that we have so many protected areas where people can enjoy the outdoors. I’m always finding new things to explore and sometimes sit by the river and enjoy the sound of the water flowing over the rocks near the wetland area. Amersham has a supportive community that unites people who share interests. I’m proud to be part of this community.”
The Midsomer on the Misbourne trail attracts new visitors and Amersham residents. The next Midsomer Murders & More guided tour is on Saturday, 21st October. The Chilterns Walking Festival Midsomer on the Misbourne walk from Great Missenden through Little Missenden to Amersham is on Saturday, 28th October.
