Filming at The Barbour Institute

Home Fires is a British period ITV drama about the life of the Women's Institute members on the Home Front during the Second World War. Set in a fictional rural Cheshire community called Great Paxford the series was inspired by the book Jambusters by Julie Summers.

The Barbour Institute was transformed into a village hospital, as explained by executive producer Catherine Oldfield. "We chose to film in Cheshire because it's very beautiful. We looked all over Britain. The architecture of Cheshire is very distinctive and we really wanted to create a sense of this working community."
