The truth of where is Father Brown filmed cannot be answered with a placename because the Father Brown series is not filmed in a single village, or just the Cotswolds or a single County. The producers of the famous BBC series trawl around the Cotswolds and surrounding counties of Oxfordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Herefordshire. Visiting some of these places you will have instant recognition and others only be recognised from one particular angle.
