Heartbeat Aidensfield - more photos


In 1992, Yorkshire Television started filming the pilot series of a new TV drama, based on Nicholas Rhea's books about a young London policeman in the 1960's, who leaves the rat race, to become a local village bobby on the North Yorkshire Moors. In the books (and the Heartbeat TV series) the village is called Aidensfield, but in real life it is Goathland, a tiny moorland village between Whitby and Pickering. The first series, was only 6 episodes, and was done as a "trial". The programme was such a success, that it quickly became the UK's no 1 drama series, and still attracts TV audiences all over the world. Heartbeat started as a trial in 1992, but went on for another 17 years, until the last episode "Sweet Sorrow" (episode 373) was shown in September 2010. More photographs here!
