Set in acres of beautiful grounds, just off the A4074* Oxford road, Mapledurham House is a Tourism South East award winner often seen in TV'S Midsomer Murders. Indeed, Mapledurham’s watermill was used as a location in Michael Caine's 1976 film The Eagle Has Landed, and features on the cover of Black Sabbath's 1970 debut album. The watermill is the only operational mill on the Thames, the flour it produces being used to make the scones for Mapledurham's own tea room, which will be open on the day of the Picnic. Freshly made to order sandwiches and homemade soup will also be available. Also open to the public on the day are the main house and watermill (from 2pm), visitors to the Picnic being offered a £3.50 discount on the usual £9.50 admission.
