 Barbondale, Cumbria, UK – Poirot, Double Sin (1990) - posted by bill&ben

Long Description:
Poirot decides to take a holiday at the seaside, accompanied by Captain Hastings. Poirot’s actual motive for the holiday is to secretly listen to a talk given by Chief Inspector Japp nearby. Whilst on holiday Poirot and Hastings take a trip to the Lake District. On the coach to the Lake District they befriend a young woman taking some valuable miniatures for sale. At their destination the young woman discovers the miniatures have been stolen. Poirot doesn’t want to get involved, so Hastings decides to investigate. Hastings gets hold of the wrong end of the stick and mistakenly pursues a man eloping with a famous authoress. Eventually Poirot steps in and proves that the robbery was faked in order to sell the miniatures and to retrieve them as stolen.

The road through Barbondale is used twice for the coach journey between the seaside and the Lake District. In the first use of the location the coach descends through Barbondale to a public house, where Poirot and Hastings take a drink with the young lady with the miniatures. After the stop at the public house the coach then ascends through Barbondale. The ascent and descent are at the same spot on the road with the camera panned through 180 degrees.
