WHITE House Farm looks like any other country home – except it was the scene of one of the most brutal murders in British history.

In 1985 police found the bodies of a family of five who were peppered with gunshot holes. Here’s what we know about the house…

Where is White House Farm?

The quaint property is near Tolleshunt D’Arcy in Essex.  At the time of the murders it was inhabited by June and Nevill Bamber, both 61, their adopted daughter Sheila Caffell, 28 and her twin sons Daniel and Nicholas Caffell.

It is nestled among 300 acres of Tenant farmland that belonged to June’s dad.

Who were the Bambers?

Ralph Nevill Bamber was a farmer, former RAF pilot and a local magistrate at Witham Magistrates’ Court. He and his wife, June moved into the grand Georgian house on Pages Lane in 1949.

Police discovered the body of Nevill next to the AGA – he had been shot eight times and had head injuries.

On the upstairs landing lay June – she’d been shot between her eyes.

Sheila lay in the bedroom with two bullet wounds to the throat and a rifle across her body – leading the police officers to initially believe she’d killed her family then herself.

Her six-year-old twins Daniel and Nicholas were in the next room, both having been shot several times in the head.

After realising that the gun was too long for her to have shot herself, the blame was shifted to her adopted brother, Jeremy.
