“Bradford has a long and well-documented history of providing brilliant locations for all kinds of productions, but the need to build sets near some of these locations is becoming more and more urgent, especially as many productions make a conscious choice, an effort to be more sustainable and travel less between set and on location.

Filming also took place in private homes in and around the district, including the village of Eccleshill and Rawdon.

Amanda and Simon Meadows opened their home – Skye House, in Larkfield Road, Rawdon – so that the scenes could be shot over a three-day period.
