Following the release of Clarkson's Farm season two the Diddly Squat farm shop reopened today.

The former Top Gear presenter bought the farm in 2008, which until 2019, had been taken care of by a local villager.

Mr Clarkson then decided to have his turn at running the site seeing the launch of Clarkson's Farm on Amazon Prime Video.

The farm shop was opened in 2020 selling items produced either on the Diddly Squat Farm or nearby in the Cotswolds.

Since its opening the shop has been besieged by fans of the series, causing traffic problems and friction with neighbours.

Police yesterday issued advice to fans who are expected to flood to the reopening of the Diddly Squat farm shop after its winter closure.

A Thames Valley Police spokesperson said: "The farm are doing what they can to deal with the influx of visitors, so please follow signage on the day.

"If you are directed by staff, whether you are through traffic or visiting DSF, please be kind and patient with them – they are doing all they can to help keep you safe and allow traffic to flow."

A warning has also been issued by the county council not to park near Diddly Squat Farm and shop.

Sharing a picture of damaged verges next to the site, Oxfordshire County Council posted: "If you’re visiting Jeremy Clarkson’s Diddly Squat Farm Shop in Chadlington from tomorrow, please park safely and considerately.

"Don’t park on the A361. It’s just too dangerous. And please avoid parking on the verges of the narrow Chipping Norton Road as it causes damage."

Last year, the shop closed during January and February after West Oxfordshire District Council ordered mandatory renovation work after the wrong materials were used for the roof.

Fans speculated about the reason behind the temporary closing, and eventually someone behind the Diddly Squat Farm Shop account responded: “Council insisted we change the roof. Closed for building work’”.

Back in August Mr Clarkson was ordered to shut the dining areas of the shop site after West Oxfordshire council said he breached planning laws.

The council, on August 12, gave the Who Wants to be a Millionaire host six weeks to remove tables used for dining, mobile toilets and landscaping materials.

Diddly Squat Farm Shop was also instructed to stop selling products that were not produced on the farm or within a 16-mile radius without council approval.

Mr Clarkson's representatives said the demands were “excessive” and the six-week period was “too short” for the changes to be made.

The shop is open from 9.30am to 4.30pm from Thursdays to Sundays.
