War Horse – 2010

Steven Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’ is a fabulous film and you can see Castle Combe featured in certain scenes including Market Square where the horse fair took place and at By Brook where Albert bids farewell to Joey, the horse, as he is ridden off to war. In preparation, windows were repainted, outdoor lights removed and the tarmac street covered in theatrical mud!

Dr Dolittle – 1967

In original film starring Rex Harrison and Anthony Newly, Castle Combe appeared as ‘Puddleby-on-the-Marsh’ and despite being miles from the sea, ‘By Brook’, the stream running through the village was transformed into a bustling seafront! In the main high street you may recognise the jail, seafront and doctor’s house used in the film.

THE WOLFMAN – 2010

Castle Combe features as the village of ‘Blackmoor’ in ‘The Wolfman’, a 2010 remake of the original 1941 film starring Benicio del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt and Hugo Weaving. The tithe barn at nearby Lacock Abbey also appears as the dark and gloomy building in which Talbot views the mutilated body of his brother among the carcasses of animals!

STARDUST – 2008

After a make-over to make it look even more ‘oldy worldly’, Castle Combe played the role of a sleepy English village called ‘Wall’ in the fantasy love story ‘Stardust’ which is based on an adaptation of the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name. The Stardust cast includes Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Claire Danes, Claudia Schiffer, Charlie Cox and Sienna Miller.
