Long Description:
As a result of its charm and state of preservation, it is a popular rural location for films and television. Amongst the television series filmed in the village are:

several episodes of the popular sixties TV series, The Avengers, including the complete episode Murdersville;
the initial advertisements for the National Lottery - despite the fact that the shop was unable to sell tickets at the time; and
the short-lived Shillingbury Tales series, filmed in 1980. The church, churchyard/graveyard and path to the primary school as well as the Greyhound public house also featured heavily in a classic Dave Allen sketch (the race to the funeral between two funeral parties).
Films that have had scenes set in Aldbury include:

The Dirty Dozen 1967
Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason 2004
and the last production by Gainsborough Pictures, "Jassy" of 1947.
It is a small village of around 800 inhabitants, with a small shop and two traditional country pubs: the Greyhound and the Valiant Trooper, both are run by the same landlord currently. The Greyhound has featured in the movie: Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (including a scene involving fox hunting that was cut from the cinema release but is on the DVD release) and Inspector Morse - the TV detective series.
