2022 is set to be a big year for TV in Calderdale

Another BBC drama that will likely broadcast next year is The Gallows Pole.

The show is based on the novel of the same name by Benjamin Myers and fictionalises the remarkable true story of the rise and fall of David Hartley and the Cragg Vale Coiners.

Filming is currently taking place at locations across Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire, with film crews spotted in Heptonstall last month.

Channel 4 school drama Ackley Bridge is set to return for a fifth series, with filming starting next month.

The series follows staff and students at a school in a fictional Yorkshire mill town.

Over the years filming has taken place at the former St Catherine’s Catholic High School, Holmfield, as well as at locations in Halifax town centre.

With Happy Valley set to begin filming early next year, 2022 is set to be a Calderdale TV takeover.
