ITV drama Downton Abbey came to St Mary’s Church yesterday.

Cast and crew of the international hit series were in the churchyard to shoot scenes between 8am and 10am.

The Rev Jan Fielden said the crew had been filming a scene for the Christmas special, featuring butler Charles Carson (Jim Carter) and housekeeper Elsie Hughes (Phyllis Logan). She said: “We met the actors. They were lovely.”
