All Creatures Great And Small Season 1 Filming Locations
All Creatures Great and Small Season one of 2020 is substantially filmed in Yorkshire Dales. The fictional village of Darrowby is actually the Grassington village of Upper Wharfedale. Nidderdale was largely used a the base of filming locations to provide the perfect village site scene to the series.
However, the series filmed between 1978 and 1990 was filmed in Wensleydale and Swaledale, the northern part of Dales. Earlier, the village of Askrigg was used for the fictional village for Darroway, which can be considered as the original Darroway village of the series. However, some changes are made in the new series.
The thought of shooting in a village proved to be successful as the true essence of the village remained intact, and no extra changes were required. The cast was so excited to shoot in a village. However, it was a little hasty due to the absence of any modern house and technologies we are normally used to. Actor Rachel Shenton shared her enthusiasm by saying that the cast was shooting around the parameters of Dales. Dales is a place of beauty within, and as the actor suggested, the place is breathtaking. The production tried to take the shooting set to Thirsk, which is the base of the actual vet, Alf Wight practice, as the place totally dilapidated the small-town feel required in the series. Some small detailing was somehow required to make the set perfect which was quite fun for the production.
