scrabblesaturdays:



I was pleasantly surprised to find out that these scenes from Brideshead Revisited (1981) were filmed in Malta (that’s where I live, If by now you haven’t realized), supposedly as Morocco.

When Charles’s mother was killed there was a memorial service for her at Boughton, his home village…




Boughton is a village and civil parish in the Daventry district of Northamptonshire, England, about 4 miles (6.4 km) from Northampton town centre along the A508 road between Northampton and Market Harborough. The parish area straddles both side of the road but the main part of the village is east. It is on the northern fringe of the Northampton urban area and, together with the neighbouring village of Moulton is in the preferred area for the expansion of the town.

In the novel, Boughton is also mentioned by Mr Ryder:



I never had any myself except once from your cousin Alfred. Do you know in the summer before I was going up, your cousin Alfred rode over to Boughton especially to give me a piece of advice?



and also by Charles himself:



“Two Christmases” - those bleak, annual excursions into propriety. Boughton, home of my family, home of my cousin Jasper, with what glum memories of childhood I revisited its pitch-pine corridors and dripping walls!

Madresfield Court in Worcestershire.





another hour
The timing is revealing. They left Oxford at nine o’clock and drove for two hours, leaving Swindon behind them before stopping for wine and strawberries. They then drove for another hour (three in all so far) and then dined at the farmhouse inn. They drove on after an unspecified lunchtime and for an unspecified period before arriving ‘in the early afternoon’. They can hardly have driven for much less than a total of four hours. On the roads of that time they could not have averaged much above 20 m.p.h., which puts Brideshead at (say) between 60 and 100 miles from Oxford.

Brideshead not found

Brideshead
contra mundum

the Bride … the Avon There is a River Bride in Dorset which rises in a lake near which Bridehead House is situated. I do not know whether EW drew on these names for his Castle and river. There are three rivers Avon which it seems at this stage EW could be referring to. It is almost as if he is playing a game with his readers - now guess which one it is. One is the Warwickshire Avon which flows west through Shakespeare’s Stratford to the Severn; another flows into the Bristol Channel; and the third flows south into the English Channel near Bournemouth.

(Cliffe)



Brideshead Castle, Wiltshire Now we learn in which county Brideshead is situated. It is still not quite clear which River Avon it is near : it is not the Warwickshire Avon but both remaining candidates pass through Wiltshire.

(Cliffe)



Melstead Carbury There is no such place. EW does not say where Charles changed to a local line, but it is most probably Swindon - he would have had time for dinner between Reading and Swindon. There is a local line from Swindon which goes through Chippenham and Melksham to Trowbridge and Bradford-on-Avon. This is the Avon that enters the Bristol Channel through the Avon Gorge : as a result it is the likeliest candidate for Brideshead’s Avon. One cannot determine which town, if any, served as a model for Melstead Carbury, though Iain Gale (in Waugh’s World) places Brideshead Castle near Chippenham.

Marchers

mr waugh
Why does everyone except me find it so easy to be nice?
St. James’s
The site of Marchmain House in St. James’s indicates how prestigious the Marchmains are. It is the very best area of London.

(Cliffe)

across the park
We know that Marchmain House is in Saint James’s, which is the prestigious area between Buckingham Palace and Whitehall, and that Charles lives in Bayswater, so the park is almost certainly Hyde Park, which lies between the two, though Charles might, if he were walking, go through Green Park first. No doubt the taxi took the route via Piccadilly and Park Lane.
We know from the first edition of BR that the Ryder house is in Hyde Park Gardens, a small road lying just behind Bayswater Road on the north side of Hyde Park itself.)

(Cliffe)

Green Park
one of central London’s major parks. Iain Gale (in his book Waugh’s World) places Marchmain House in Arlington Street next to Green Park. It certainly is in Saint James’s, and so close to Buckingham Palace.
