Essex trivia #4 Marmalade Murders at Tiptree

“We had Midsomer Murders filming here a few years ago,” remembers the Wilkin & Son factory production manager Mike Smith. “The chap was crushed by what was meant to be a pallet of pickle, though it was really tawny marmalade.” Crushed by a conserve — a very British murder indeed.

All facts are from Pete May's new book The Joy of Essex (Robson Press).

  1. Liking the alliteration - crushed by a conserve, pallet of pickle - almost as much as I like Tiptree jams... Nicola
