Chinnor Station has appeared in the popular TV series Midsomer Murders on several occasions. In March 2007 the station became Holm Lane Junction for Death in a Chocolate Box, which was produced by Bentley Productions and first shown on ITV on the 11 May 2008, and because of demand it has been repeated many times since.

You can also see several more images below which were captured by our volunteers Trevor and Rob on the day of filming.

Why not come along and visit the station, take those memorable images on your own camera and, of course, do please ride the Railway!
