Series Two


Episode 1 Someone, Somewhere


Unless otherwise stated the images for this episode are by Johno. 

This is Globe Road at the Leeds end of the Leeds/Liverpool Canal. 



Steve walks along by the canal.

The doorway can still be seen next to the pink flowers by the Barge.  



The approximate location of Blackett's Cafe. This was filmed on Woodhouse Street in Leeds. When Steve crosses the street to the Cafe, you can see the spire of the Church of the Holy Name in the background. This has since been demolished. Rob's image taken in 2012. 



Still at the Leeds end of the canal, the location for the Night Café. 



The Lock Keepers Cottage is near Dobson Lock, Apperley Bridge and down a private drive. 

Image far right taken by Barney in 2008.



The track where Dora and Ron meet hasn't changed that much.



Again near Dobson Lock, Apperley where Dora sat pining for Steve.

Jane's image taken in 2011 shows it's still a peaceful stretch of the canal.




Episode 2 The Debt


Haddocks Wharf was just off Dock Street near Leeds Bridge where

the old British Waterways Depot was. You can see in Johno's

image the building with the bay window is still there.




Episode 3 Family of Strangers


Episode 4 A Present for Sandy


Drapers Farm in Shadwell was the same location as Tinikers Farm in episode Gypsy.

Thanks Johno for the images.



Seth Draper's Horse box passes this house, Rose Cottage, on Brandon Lane. If you slow the DVD down as the horse box passes there's a road sign you can just make out as the start of Brandon.




Episode 5 The Innocents


The pit location for most of this episode was filmed at Thornhill Colliery in Dewsbury, which was used by Kirklees Building services until 2015 when the site was demolished to make way for a housing estate.


Images by Jane 2014

Entrance to the mine




The wall and area to the left has been back-filled and is now a car park.



The square buildings in the middle of the screen cap above are the old and newer winding houses.

The older winding house is to the left of the chimney.


Left image is the newer winding house, old winding house on the right.




The view behind is still recognisable today by the sewage farm on the left.

The building on the right in the screen cap has been demolished.




One of the mine shafts now capped off.

The buildings in the background of the screen cap have been demolished.  




The houses seen in the background are still there, if somewhat altered.




The house with the blue door appears to have been demolished.

The house next to it on the right, seen in the middle screen cap, is still there with alterations over the years.




Driveway to the mine



UPDATE 2015 Thanks to Rick for these latest photos showing demolition of the site.

Episode 6 The Hundred Pound Horse


Tim hides in Harewood Castle which is on the Harewood Estate. You can walk around the outside of the Castle, or book on a Castle tour (keep an eye on the Harewood House Website for details) and follow in Tim's footsteps!

Jane's images taken in 2015 







The Lodge Harewood Estate can be seen just behind Steve's head.

Rob's image taken in 2009




Episode 7 Poor Bald Head


The Coal yard in Otley                Rob's image taken in 2013. It looks much the same 



The notorious Thacket's Rise was filmed at the bottom of King's Road.

Google Street view shows the lower end of King's Road has been re-developed, and the road now ends in a cul-de-sac. 

Jane's image on the right taken in 2011 shows Kelsall Road from the junction with Alexandra Road, more or less where King's Road would have ended. This is the road that can be seen in the distance on the screen cap.




Episode 8 The Prize


The Gymkhana was held in the grounds of Stockeld Park. Jane's image taken in 2011. 



The lovely Pack Horse Bridge in Washburn Valley, Dob Park.

This location was also used in The Standstill Horse where Lewis falls off his bike in the river.

Episode 9 Treasure Hunt


Steve and Wendy by the second lake at Follyfoot Farm.

Motormouse's image taken in 2013 shows it's still a magical place.



The Derwent sisters house was filmed at Eagle Hall, Pateley Bridge.

The house is now converted into flats.

Episode 10 Debt of Honour


Carne Manor was filmed at Ribston Hall, a privately owned mansion at Great Ribston near Knareborough. 

The clock above the stables is still there. Hollinhare's image taken in 2011. 




Episode 11 Out-of-the-Blue Horse


The school was located in the village of Thorner. It is now the Parish Centre. Dora looked

through the window on the end of the building. As Jane's image in 2011 shows, Dora would

have had to stand on wheelie bins nowadays!



Albian Street. Google Street view shows the red phone box is sadly no longer there.



The Star Inn at Clifford, High Street is still there but the garage has been gone about 20 years.

The entrance to Garage owner Arnold Berwick's house was opposite the Inn.

Thanks Johno for the image

Entrance to the Colonel's mansion was filmed at Stockeld Park.

Jane's image taken in 2010
