    You probably mean the village called Blackridge in this film.

    I'm looking also the location for this very pretty village from the first time I watched Evil Under the Sun. I have seen many times this film and the last two times were on March 5th and March 8th from a local TV station here in Macedonia.



    In the Agatha Christie's book Evil Under the Sun, the fictional village called Blackridge is in Surrey:

    "Alice Corrigan." He paused. "I've been on to the Surrey police about that case - wanted to get all the ins and outs of it."

    "Tell me, my friend. I am interested - very interested."

    "I thought you might be. Alice Corrigan was found strangled in Caesar's Grove on Blackridge Heath - not ten miles from Marley Copse where Nellie Parsons was found - and both those places are within twelve miles of Whiteridge where Mr Lane was vicar."

    Poirot said: "Tell me more about the death of Alice Corrigan."

    Colgate said: "The Surrey police didn't at first connect her death with that of Nellie Parsons.

    In the film Evil Under the Sun with David Suchet as Hercule Poirot, the fictional village called Blackridge is in Kent:

    Lo era, de la iglesia de St. Matthew en Blackridge, en Kent.

    Blackridge has some resemblances with two Midsomer Murders villages:

    1. Beckley, Oxfordshire

    Midsomer Murders episode "The Electric Vendetta" in the scene when Peter Rhodes, Marquis of Ross drives through Beckley on his way to Sir Christian Aubrey's house.

    2. Turville, Buckinghamshire

    Midsomer Murders episode "Murder on St. Malley's Day" in the scenes when the boys from 'Devington School' run through Turville during the St. Malley's Day race.

    according to tv.com:

    The location: Evil Under the Sun was filmed on Burgh Island, off the coast of Devon, England, where Agatha Christie wrote the original story. In case you think you have seen the island before, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, an episode of another English show, Lovejoy, was also filmed there. [edit]

    I don't think Sleepin_Dragon means about the seaside location as for the location of the picturesque village used at the very start. This film begins with the speach of Reverend Stephen Lane in the St. Matthew's church in the fictional village called Blackridge when Alice Corrigan is murdered. Inside the church, among other people there is Alice Corrigan's husband Edward Deverill (Edward Corrigan in the book) which later appears to be the same person as Patrick Redfern and also a murderer of his wife Alice Corrigan and Arlena Stuart Marshall. Most of the seaside locations were filmed in the Burgh Island Hotel, Burgh Island, Bigbury Bay, Devon (fictional Jolly Roger Hotel, Smugglers Island, Leathercombe Bay, Devon in the book). The body of Alice Corrigan was found by Jane Martindale (Christine Deverill in the book) which is the same person as Patrick Redfern's wife Christine Redfern. The village called Blackridge appears also later in the scenes when Miss Lemon arrives in the Blackridge station for investigating Alice Corrigan's murder together with Chief Constable Weston (Colonel Weston in the book). As I wrote in my previous post the setting of 'Blackridge' is in Kent for this film (and Surrey in the book), so the real location of 'Blackridge' probably is in Home Counties area, not Devon!!!

    I discovered the location of the village!!!



    First, I found the clips of the film "Evil Under the Sun" (2001) with David Suchet on 17 August. After that, I made these 13 (or to be accurate 14) screengrabs and I was searching the location of the picturesque village used at the very start and also later when Miss Lemon arrives at the Blackridge station. I could discover the location much earlier, but I had no screengrabs. As I wrote previously the village has some resemblances with two Midsomer Murders villages: Beckley (Oxfordshire) and Turville (Buckinghamshire). I had a 'feeling' that the same village appears also in Midsomer Murders. I compared the screengrabs with the pictures inside Midsomer Murders Locations Index from Joan Street website Midsomer Murders. I was searching the pictures inside the place names and I have identified two positive matches, villages Hambleden and Frieth, in Buckinghamshire. So, four and a half months ago I was very close when I wrote Turville (Buckinghamshire) in the post #2, because the distance between Turville and Hambleden is only 3,63 miles.





    1. In the book "Evil Under the Sun" (1941), Reverend Stephen Lane is a vicar of St Helen’s church, in the fictional village called Whiteridge, in Surrey.



    2. In the film "Evil Under the Sun" (2001), Reverend Stephen Lane is a vicar of St Matthew’s church, in the fictional village called Blackridge, in Kent.



    3. The film locations of the fictional Blackridge is Hambleden, in Buckinghamshire.

    3A. St Matthew’s church in reality is St Mary the Virgin, Hambleden, Buckinghamshire, RG9 6RX.

    3B. The exteriors of Blackridge Village Hall (where the Coroners Court was held) is Frieth Village Hall, Frieth, Buckinghamshire, RG9 6PR.

    You can see photos and details of many of the locations used in 'Poirot' with David Suchet on my TV locations site at tvlocations.net

    This includes several locations seen in 'Evil under the Sun'

    Am also hoping to expand the site to include Miss Marple locations over the coming months.
