North York Moors - Tv, Film & Literature

Castle walk-path

The spectacular natural beauty of the North York Moors National Park, which ranges from rugged coastal locations to more tranquil inland pastures, means it features as a regular backdrop on both TV and the big screen. The BBC’s flagship outdoors programme, Countryfile, has been a regular visitor in recent years – it hosted the 2014 final of One Man and his Dog at Byland Abbey, and devoted a whole programme to the Staithes Arts Festival in 2013.Beautiful Goathland doubled as both Aidensfield in ITV’s 60s police drama Heartbeat, and its railway station as Hogsmeade station in the Harry Potter movie series. Staithes, meanwhile, is home to children’s favourite Old Jack’s Boat.

Writers also love this area. Much of AS Byatt’s novel Possession (later made into a movie starring Gwyneth Paltrow, and partly filmed in Whitby) was set along the Heritage Coast.
