This being World Cup time we recorded an episode of Morse. A little way through ‘The Infernal Serpent’ from 1990 Mrs B and me both said: ‘I recognise that pub’. It was of course the interior of the Old Barge pub on Folly Island, just ten doors away.
We often have this kind of moment, usually when watching Morse, or Lewis, or Midsomer Murders or Rosemary and Thyme and often remark how good that pub looks and wonder where it is, because the name always seems to have been changed to fit the plot.
These are photos of the Barge from the 1990 episode of Morse to the present day and the distant past. Just click on one photo and it will expand and start slideshow.
