Properties for sale near TV filming locations as film crews continue to flock to Calderdale
Yorkshire has been revealed as one of the top destinations for UK TV programmes over the past year, with shows including Our Yorkshire Farm, Yorkshire Firefighters and The Yorkshire Jobcentre being filmed in God’s Own County.
This is great news for the region and Calderdale too, as it not only showcases Yorkshire’s breathtaking backdrops to a vast audience and attracts tourists, boosting the economy, but it can add value to property prices too.
Halifax has been the setting for many popular TV programmes over the past few years.
Feel-good show Last Tango in Halifax brought all eyes on Calderdale featuring stunning views across the Calder Valley, shortly followed by BBC drama Happy Valley which showcased all that Hebden Bridge and Sowerby Bridge had to offer.
Channel 4 drama Ackley Bridge used many locations in Halifax town centre to create the show and Gentleman Jack, the period drama based on the life of Halifax diarist Anne Lister, has attracted a high number of tourists to the area thanks to its use of Shibden Hall and the surrounding countryside.
Chris Wdowczyk, Purplebricks’ Local Property Partner said: “TV programmes and films attract large audiences and are a real source of inspiration.
"Over the past 18-months buyers have reassessed their priorities with more people looking to relocate.
"To have popular primetime programmes pick Calderdale as a filming location is of huge benefit to the economy and housing market too, as it will attract buyers adding value to property prices.”
