The penultimate episode of White House Farm aired on Wednesday night, and saw suspicions increase around Jeremy Bamber and his involvement in the murder of his family, ultimately leading to his arrest. Fans have been gripped by the dramatic true crime series, and it seems hardly surprising that viewers have been enquiring after the Essex farmhouse where the murders of June and Nevill Bamber, their daughter Sheila, and grandchildren Daniel and Nicholas, took place. So is the house still standing? Find out here... 


The house was the site of five murders

White House Farm was located nearby Tolleshunt D’Arcy, which is a small village in Essex. The filming for the TV was done just a few miles from the scene of the 1985 crime. According to HITC, the house was never demolished following the crimes, and is now used by a classic car rental company, Eastcoast Classic.

However, it has also previously been reported that one of the Bamber family's cousins, Ann Eaton, moved in following Jeremy's conviction back in 1986. Jeremy has previously referenced it from prison, as The Mirror previously revealed that he wrote a letter addressing Ann's move, which read: "Ann, my mum’s niece, lives in this rented property." He added that she was "odd and morbid to want to live at a crime scene". However, Ann might well have moved out, explaining why the property is now owned by the classic car company.
