The highly successful and popular BBC drama series 'Father Brown' is set during the early 1950s is based on the stories by GK Chesterton, in the fictional village of Kembleford. Kembleford is in actual fact Blockley, where Father Brown is a priest at St Mary's Church.

Father Brown's aim is to solve the many murders in and around Kembleford. The local bumbling police inspector having very little common-sense and often arrests the wrong suspect, tends to become annoyed by Father Brown's antics and successful deductions to solve the cases.
