Tamara Drewe film locations – Dorset and beyond

WITH the film of Tamara Drewe going on general release from today, and ahead of its premiere at the Electric Palace in Bridport next week, here is a list of the exact locations where it was filmed in Dorset and beyond.

Posy Simmonds recently spoke in The Guardian about taking inspiration from Thomas Hardy’s novel Far From The Madding Crowd, so it’s pleasing to see there’s also some literary connections lurking in the locations.

Marvell Farm at Halstock is named after the 17th century poet Andrew Marvell.

Limbury – towards the end of the last century – was the home of the retired literary agent Michael Horniman, who acted for Nevil Shute (and other authors whose names I’m afraid I can’t, at the moment, remember).

Limbury was once vaguely threatened with destruction when somebody proposed routing a Chideock and Morcombelake bypass right through it. I say vaguely because there was no chance of a bypass happening then, and there’s no chance now.

Anyway, here’s the list.

    If anyone’s seen it, can they tell me if the sexing scene on the bar in the pub at Yetminster has been kept in? I hear it was enough to make you choke on your Vimto and cider.
