You want to take a deep dive into history of England and Midsomer County. A very good choice! From November 2023 to March 2024, one to two articles per week will be published. So don’t be surprised that there aren’t that many yet and keep checking back to see what’s new!
In the menu, you have the option of looking for articles either by season or by era. Of course, you can also use the chronology by year or the chronology by season and episodes, because the respective articles are linked there.
Let’s talk about the Dissolution of the Monasteries and the Civil War in Midsomer County or Jane Austen’s 1801 visit to Whitcombe Grange, the boxing match between Sayers and Heenan at Morchard Manor….
How? Midsomer County doesn’t exist and it’s all made up? That’s a bummer! But… the locations do exist. The places, the landscape, the manors that we all have in our minds’ eye. What if we interweave Midsomer with the film locations? What about the filming location of Whitcombe Grange or Morchard Manor? Are there crossovers there? Or connections to English history in other episodes?
Each chapter begins with a content note to avoid spoilers if you don’t know all the episodes yet. The chapters are meant to entertain and perhaps provide some aha-moments for you along the way.
I would like to thank Joan Street from the bottom of my heart for her work in researching and compiling the film locations and making them available to us for free on the internet. It saved me a lot of time and effort.
Dear Joan, next time we meet, some drinks of your choice are on me.
And to you, dear readers, I hope you enjoy reading the chapters, which will be published one by one, at least one per week.
See you soon in Midsomer County!
If you would like to honour my effort and passion, I am happy and thankful for every donation.
