The Carry On films were made at Pinewood Studios which are set for major filming and TV show expansion as are Shepperton Studios.

Sir Sidney Ruff Diamond's house was Heatherden Hall, which is the country mansion in the middle of Pinewood.

It predates Pinewood and was where the Anglo Irish treaty was negotiated and signed.

If you mean Bray it's where the Hammer horror films were made amongst others , I don't think any Carry On films were made there. Prior to that the Hammers were made at the hotel next door, Oakley Court.

They might have used Bray a bit, Carry on cabby was filmed in Windsor and the Hospital in Carry on doctor was Maidenhead Town hall, all very local.
