Totleigh-in-the-Wold is a fictional location, a village in the Jeeves stories of British-American comic writer P. G. Wodehouse, being the setting for a number of little sagas involving the foppish Bertie Wooster and his indispensable valet Jeeves
Totleigh-in-the-Wold is home to one of Bertie Wooster's biggest enemies, Sir Watkyn Bassett C.B.E., magistrate of the Crown Court in Bosher Street, who fined him a finny after some rather raucous, drunken and disorderly conduct following the Oxford Boat Race Night Festivities. He lives in Totleigh Towers and is squire of the village of Totleigh-in-the-Wold. It is also the residence of Sir Watkyn's insipid, soupy daughter Madeline (who believes that Bertie is pining for her, when he isn't), his ward, Stephanie 'Stiffy' Byng, and the butler, Butterfield. Roderick Spode, the amateur dictator and close friend of Sir Watkyn, is also a regular guest.
Bertie has been down there on a number of occasions, though perhaps most notably in order to retrieve a silver cow-creamer for his Uncle Tom Travers which Sir Watkyn had stolen. Well, he actually bought it. There was also the affair of the African Tribal Totem and of his Uncle Willoughby Wooster's memoirs.
