    Here are some, according to my notes:

    Murder She Said: Paddington Station, Denham, Taplow, Maidenhead, Gerrards Cross and Radnor Hall, Elstree

    Murder at the Gallop: Aldenham, Amersham, Little Marlow, Elstree and Hilfield Castle, Bushey

    Murder Most Foul: Sarratt, Amersham, Denham and Palace Theatre, Watford

    Murder Ahoy: Denham, Amersham, St. Mawes, Cornwall and Greenhithe, Kent.

    I believe the cottage was in Denham.

    Many thanks for the information Gerald. Much appreciated. It was a shame that she only made the four films.

    Misbourne Cottage, Denham was used as Miss Marple's cottage at Old Pasture Lane, Milchester.

    Agreed. I wish she'd made a TV series in the 60s; low budget but utterly charming for Sundays ... but she didn't.

    And until recently (as I was informed by someone who used to work with his wife) the cottage was owned by Peter McCann, of Tomorrow's World fame!

    At one stage John Mills also lived at Misbourne Cottage before moving out of the village. Later he moved back to the other end of Denham Village into Hills House which bears a blue plaque denoting this.
