Goathland aka Aidensfield

The image that many Australians have of Yorkshire has been gained through the television series called 'Heartbeat' and I suppose that we are really no different. When the DH was deciding where we should stay here, he chose a tiny village just near the village of Goathland where the the exteriors for the series are filmed.

We had great fun walking around Goathland pointing to places that we had seen on television. Even in the depths of winter there were still lots of visitors to the village doing exactly what we were doing. The images in the collage above should be familiar to Heartbeat fans. We also found Greengrass' farm on the dales just outside Goathland. It is really just like it looks in the series and has a sign out the front advertising a camping and caravaning park. This seemed to me to be a vernture that Bernie Scripps would go in for. I forgot to take a photograph.
