I knew someone would know where it was, the amount of work that must have gone into doing each episode, finding locations etc, we have a road similar to this road in Southgate London, well it has the big houses behind gates but not the views. well done again, Barry.

OK another one for you, where is this bit of road, it is taken from the episode Shadow, and I think it is the same bit of road where Ron and Lewis were racing there bikes, from the same episode I think. Barry.

Hi

This road is off the Harrogate Road and Leads to Kirby Overblow, there is a farm on a bend,  which stands back off the road and this is where the point to point was held and also where the phone box was where the call was made about the collection of Shadow from Follyfoot Farm.

Yes found it on Google maps, it gave me an excuse to watch the episode Shadow again, it's a shame that BT has taken the phone boxes away, and the spot where Ron and Lewis stop after their race is a little bit further up the road passed the farm on the bend going towards Kirby Overblow this is where Ron's bike breaks down and he walks back to Follyfoot, there is a bit of a lay by it is tarmac now but was grass when it was filmed, it is also the same spot where Steve ride back to Follyfoot on Ron's bike from the point to point and turns off the road and rides across the fields.

Another one for you, lets see if I can stump the members on the forum with this one, but I bet I can't, it is taken from Stryker's Good Deed where he is leading Jon Jon back to Follyfoot.

Is this the same ford that we see Clem Barrett passing in The Four Legged Hat?  >48<  If so, it's shot in Thorner.

hi,

the ford looks very to similar to the one on Spear Fir between Wike lane and Blackmoor lane. it's not far from the blacksmiths on forge lane and very close to Hollin Hall. The barney episode was filmed in that area on Blackmoor lane.

its the only one I know of in the area.
 
it's on google earth

Hope this helps
