With its rolling landscapes and an abundant of period properties, Yorkshire offers a plethora of filming locations for any television and film project. It's no wonder that Channel 4, Sky and NFTS are making moves to Leeds! Our team at IPM have put together just a few of the spectacular places that the region has to offer.
Many of Anne’s confrontations with the Rawson Brothers take place on Rawson street in Halifax but the filming for this scene took place in the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield. The area of Little Germany in Bradford was used as the location of the street scenes set in Halifax in the 1830s.
Goathland Railway Station
Located amongst the Yorkshire Moors, this picturesque station opened up the world of magic to viewers. It is also famous for appearing as Aidensfield station in the television serie 'Hearbeat' as Mannerton in the TV series 'All Creatures Great and Small; and in the end of the video of 'Holding back the years' a song by Simply Red released in 1985.
The preservation was a key part of filming in the BBC's 'Gun Powder' as the historical site brought the life of Guy Fawkes and the Gund Powder Plot to television. For years, Fountains Abbey has been used in many screen favourites like 'Death Comes to Pemberly', 'The History Boys' and many many more productions.
BBC's 'Gunpowder' used many more iconic locations including Kirkstall Abbey and East Riddelsden Hall.
LEEDS TOWN HALL
It was also used in the opening scenes of the 2016 film 'Dad's Army' while 'The New Statesman', 'National Treasure' and 'The ABC Murders' TV series are among productions which have used interior and exterior shots of Leeds Town Hall to bring to life their story.
