Trumptonshire is a fictional county created by Gordon Murray, in which the Trumptonshire Trilogy of Camberwick Green, Trumpton and Chigley are located. According to Murray, the three communities are based on real locations one and a half miles from each other at the corners of an equilateral triangle.[1]

The puppets are designed to be around 8 inches /20cm high (without hat), though certain sites give variations between 6 and 8 inches.

BBC Studios and Post Production's Digital Media Services team remastered all 39 episodes of the Trumptonshire Trilogy in 2011 for DVD release, cleaning, scanning and digitally restoring the film footage frame by frame.[2]

Trumptonshire was used as a hypothetical constituency by the BBC Radio 4 programme More or Less to explain how polling and voting could play out during the 2015 UK general election.
