Filming at Chenies Manor


Chloe found that filming of Little Dorrit will return to Chenies Manor later this month. The BBC built a Victorian Gazebo as a prop. You can view an image of the gazebo here.

Chenies is used as the location of the Meagles’ home which is described in the novel as: “a charming place (none the worse for being a little eccentric), on the road by the river. It stood in a garden... defended by a goodly show of handsome trees and spreading evergreens”. Filming at the manor started in April and the crew and cast are due to return later this summer, so the decision was made to leave the sizeable prop – which was designed and built specially for the filming – in situ.
