Another Pub Identified this time from the Morse episode, ‘Daughters of Cain’.

Well, this is fantastic. Another reader of my blog, Richard, has written to let me know that the pub I couldn’t identify from the Morse episode The Daughters of Cain, is The Perch Inn at Binsey Lane,  Binsey, Oxford OX2 0NG. The above photo is a scene in said pub. The pub is shown in the episode at 19 minutes and 30 seconds.

Here is their website;

Richard actually worked at the pub during the time the episode was being filmed and told me that they had closed the pub for the day to allow filming. Richard’s sister and brother in law were the landlords at the time. Richard also mentioned that there was a fire at the pub a few years ago so he isn’t sure how much of the internal layout survives from when the Morse episode was filmed in 1995.

A huge thank you to Richard for this information. It is wonderful to fill another gap in the Morse pub location knowledge. Richard also thinks his sister may have photos from around the time of the filming. Fingers crossed she does.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.
