OVER the festive break may families may sit down to watch that favourite 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, much of it shot in villages around here and based on the story by James Bond creator Ian Fleming, whose family lived in Nettlebed.

In the beautiful Chilterns hamlet of nearby Russells Water there is a fine pond. This was the duck pond into which Truly Scrumptious (Sally Ann Howes) drove with her motor car, a rarity back in 1910 when the film was set. Apparently, it took several takes. Poor ducks!
