BBC Screen Adaptation To Be Filmed In Barnsley

Wednesday October 9 2013


We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


A NEW BBC screen adaptation of a hit 19th century novel will be partly filmed at a derelict farm in Barnsley.

Gothic tale Jamaica Inn, by Daphne du Maurier, is to be made into a three-part drama and Crow Edge, near Penistone, will be the setting for the inn.

Scenes will be filmed at Lower Whitley Farm, off Whams Road.

The production will feature a star cast, including Jessica Brown Findlay - Downton Abbey's Lady Sybil Branson, Sean Harris from The Borgias and Southcliffe, and Matthew McNulty, who featured in Room at the Top.

Allen Pestell, chairman of Dunford Parish Council, said: "I think it's a wonderful thing. It should be a boost for Dunford parish and Penistone and I can't wait for them to get started."

@mark - I totally agree. There are many pretty bits to Barnsley, Cawthorne is one of them. Lovely village

The problem is the people. The majority of them are thick.
