Candleshoe was a 1977 Walt Disney Productions live action family film starring David Niven, Helen Hayes, Jodie Foster and Leo McKern. The film was based on the Michael Innes novel 'Christmas at Candleshoe'.
The film's plot involved a picture being hidden aboard a train, which is chased by a vintage 1924 Rolls Royce chauffeured by David Niven. Shots were filmed alongside Trimpley Reservoir, at Eardington Road Bridge and at Waterworks Crossing where Niven's character flags the engine to a stop. GWR Small Prairie 4566 was the locomotive used in filming in October 1976.
