Where's That Then? No 22

How romantic, a castle on a hill in winter sunlight. But where is it? One clue might be that a big BBC Sunday night serial was filmed here in the early eighties. And that it's neighbour could not be more different in character. Extra toast for the name of the programme. With Tiptree's Orange & Tangerine Marmalade.

Looks like a rather unconventional view of Rockingham - famous for inclusion in "scrap heap challenge" a while ago of course

"It's"? Oh I do hope this precious place is not becoming infected with the ambient illiteracy.

Ahem, that should have said... If that's Rockingham Castle, which it indubitably is, then the BBC telly series was 'By The Sword Divided'

Diplo gets it, Lemon Kelly gets the extra toast.

I don't know much about Rockingham, but the name reminds me of the porcelain manufacturer and of a story about Noël Coward. Coward was sitting next to dancer and director Wendy Toye at a rehearsal and they were watching a scene in which a young dancer had forgotten to wear anything under his form-clinging costume. Coward turned to Toye: "Will somebody please tell that young man to remove the Rockingham tea service from his tights," he said.

Brilliant, thankyou Wilko. That Noel, eh?
