The series is set in the Cotswolds in the early 1950s and based on the detective stories by G. K. Chesterton. The BBC period drama series launched in 2013 and returned to our screens for the 7th series. Speculation was abound of a further series 8 in 2019.
The Father Brown film crew have been spotted during the creation of series 8 and have been sighted in various parts of the Cotswolds. In June rumour has it that they were filming in the beautiful village of Notgrove, located between Bourton on the Water and Andoversford.
Other Cotswolds village filming locations of course will probably be used such as the picturesque Lower Slaughter, Broad Campden, Moreton-in-Marsh, Upper Slaughter, Guiting Power, Sudeley Castle and Chastleton House. Regular filming takes place in the Gloucestershire village of Blockley where, using the Church of St. Peter and St Paul. Blockley CofE (Church of England) and transformed into the St. Mary Roman Catholic church with the vicarage transformed into presbytery for Father Brown's residence in the parish.
