The Bull and Butcher, Turville
Situated in Turville, a village well known for the filming of ’Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ ‘Midsomer Murders’ and ‘The Vicar of Dibley’, the Bull and Butcher dates from 1550 and is a grade II listed building. In 1942 another film was shot here in Turville called ‘Went the Day Well‘, when the village was portrayed as being under German occupation. It was during this year, on 22 September 1942, that Lacey Beckett (Age 61), landlord of the Bull and Butcher shot his wife Elizabeth (Age 57) in the head whilst she slept in an upstairs room. He also shot their dog before fatally shooting himself outside where the car park is now.
