A year ago today

Are you up for a walk down memory lane?  Even a year ago is almost distant memory, but it won’t be long now before we can get out and explore again.

I see that on this day last year I was attending the launch of Buckinghamshire’s new Midsomer Murders leaflets, led by my friend Sarah Osborne.  This fun event took place at the Lions of Bledlow pub, with a lovely walk along The Ridgeway afterwards, picking up a couple of places where that long-running series has been filmed.  We all came with news of a new virus, and were strictly forbidden to shake hands with each other.  But we all chattered away, with no social distancing or face masks – yet.  How innocent!

Midsomer Murders country (mainly in the counties of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire) has not gone away.  Indeed, it will be even more exciting this year for a year of absence.  I don’t seem to have taken any pictures at last year’s event, so instead this is a reminder of just one of the distinctive places where Midsomer has been filmed, the Courthouse at Long Crendon.

And here is a link to my walks in Midsomer.  If you are mad about the show you must come and see some of the locations and I’d love to show you around.
