Clarkson’s Farm Filming Locations
‘Clarkson’s Farm’ is filmed in England, specifically in the Cotswolds. As per reports, the principal photography for the sophomore round of the documentary series commenced in January 2022 and seemingly wrapped up in July of the same year. Now, without further ado, let’s follow Jeremy Clarkson and his agricultural associates as they work on their farm together and get a detailed account of the specific sites that feature in the Amazon Prime series!
Most of the pivotal sequences for ‘Clarkson’s Farm’ are lensed in the Cotswolds, a region in the central-southwest part of England. In particular, Jeremy’s farm Diddly Squat is situated at the heart of the Cotswolds region while his farm shop Diddly Squate Farm Shop, is located at 5-12 Chipping Norton Road, Chadlington, in Chipping Norton. Most of the series is recorded on location in and around these sites. Moreover, The Big View Café near the farm shop is a pivotal production location.
Jeremy named his farm Diddly Squat, which translates to “the least amount” or “nothing,” to indicate the farm’s lack of productivity. Before he bought the land in 2008, along with Curdle Hill Farm, it was a part of the Sarsden estate in Oxfordshire. After the former local farmer named Howard, who used to farm the fields, retired in 2019, Jeremy decided to attempt farming the land himself. These fields used to be arable in most parts, used for growing rapeseed, barley, and wheat.
The Cotswolds’ economy heavily depends on tourism, as many tourists visit the region annually. Several places of interest scattered across the region attract people from all over the globe. Some significant ones are Sudeley Castle, Tetbury Market House, Chavenage House, Woodchester Mansion, Cotswold Falconry Centre, Mechanical Music Museum, The Royal Gardens at Highgrove, Cotswold Wildlife Park, and Jet Age Museum.
