The West Country region
Box is in the center of many tourist attractions... Lacock a village know for its attractive location for many Television series Pride and Prejudice, Cranford and was a film set for Harry Potter and Mariah Mundi and the Midas Box; Combe is the home of a motor racing venue, Castle Combe Circuit, located on the disused RAF Castle Combe airfield. It was also used as a location for the film musical Doctor Dolittle, but its frequently rainy summer climate, and the residents' irritation at the producers' arbitrary modifications of the area for shooting that was severe enough to incite attempted sabotage, frustrated production. Raymond Austin, director/writer, set the action of his book, Find Me A Spy, Catch me a Traitor in the village and at the Manor. Other productions include "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd", an episode of Agatha Christie's Poirot, and the films Stardust and The Wolfman, and the 1967 motion picture version of Doctor Dolittle. Throughout September 2010, the village was used as a key filming location for Steven Spielberg's production of War Horse.
