Thame, just eight miles from Hartwell House, regularly features either as Causton, or as any one of the many villages in the fictional Midsomer County. Many Thame landmarks have been featured in different episodes over this time, including Thame Town Hall, the Market House, Rumsey’s Chocolaterie, the historic Swan, Black Horse, and Spread Eagle, together with many other locations.
