White House Farm, the scene of five murders in 1985, has found a rather unexpected use.

ITV have always brought viewers fascinating drama series and in the past year, with A Confession also making waves, have earned a lot of praise for their series based on real-life events.

The latest of these is the now completed White House Farm which came to an end on Wednesday, February 12th after eight episodes. 

Naturally, with this series being based on a true story, there have been plenty of questions asked about the people involved in the story as well as the locations.

The story of White House Farm

ITV's drama tells the story of the White House Farm murders that, in August 1985, took the lives of five people.

Police officers initially believed that the incident was a murder-suicide with 28-year-old Sheila Caffell, adopted daughter of June and Nevill Bamber, thought to be behind the killings as she suffered from schizoaffective disorder.

However, in the weeks after the murders took place, new evidence appeared and the investigation took a hugely dramatic turn.

It transpired that it was Jeremy Bamber, adopted son of the murdered June and Nevill Bamber who had carried out the gruesome killing.

Who owns White House Farm now?

After playing host to the murder of five people, you would be forgiven for thinking that White House Farm would either remain empty or have been knocked down in the decades since the murders.

However, that is far from the case as White House Farm, just outside Tolleshunt D'Arcy in Essex, is currently the home of a classic car rental company.

The company in question is Eastcoast Classics, who have a collection of iconic and classic vehicles to rent for events such as weddings or even family holidays.

ITV's dramatisation of White House Farm concluded on Wednesday, February 12th with the series now available to stream on ITV Hub.
