St Mary's Church Bampton

 The filming of the blockbuster television series Downton Abbey was a new experience for Bampton. The square around St Mary's church was ued to film all the village scenes, including all marriages and funerals in the church, the home of the Crawley family, several pubs, the post office and the cottage hospital.

Bampton needed souvenirs for the many visitors who come to see the film set. Luckily Pip, who lives in the village, was well known for painting local houses, including Blenheim Palace, so she was quickly recruited to paint some of the buildings used in the filming.

More recently, to complete the set, she has painted the main house itself, Highclere Castle and Byfleet Manor, used as the Dower House in the series.
