The Lovejoy Connection

During the 90’s, Belchamp Hall was used by the BBC as a location for Lovejoy, the popular TV series about a roguish antiques dealer. Belchamp Hall in Belchamp Walter was the location for Lady Jane Felsham’s home (the fictional Felsham Hall) in the series.

The British TV comedy-crime-drama series ran over a period of eight years, between 1986 and 1994, and based on the adventures of Lovejoy, played by Ian McShane. Many of the filming locations were shot across lovely parts of Suffolk & Essex, including Belchamp Walter.

Lovejoy’s workshop for the last two seasons of the series is in the grounds of Belchamp Hall, which has now been converted into accommodation for either weddings, or for those simply wishing to retreat away from the rat race. You’ll find original extras from the film, such as the hanging ‘Lovejoys’ sign, all over the place!
