									Emmerdale Farm - Visit the Emmerdale Farm Locations
Visiting the filming locations of the popular ITV night time soap opera
Emmerdale is still quite an easy task.
When the filming of Emmerdale first began in the 1970s, the small
Yorkshire town of Arndale in Littondale was used for the very early title
sequences of the show. The show was originally conceived as being a
daytime soap opera, this was soon moved to it's early evening time slot,
a place it still holds today after more than 20 years.
At the beginning of the 1980s, the outdoor shots were then filmed in the
town of Esholt also in West Yorkshire. Esholt was used for a very long
time for shooting scenes, this in return made the town very popular with
tourists, later causing a problem because with so many visitors were
coming to visit Esholt, the local council were receiving complaints from
residents that their town was becoming over run. After discussions and
plans being submitted for extra car parks and facilities, it was decided
by the council that this was not a good plan.
The early 1990s saw the whole format of Emmerdale Farm change, Farm was
dropped from the title and an exclusive purpose built outdoor set was
built on the outskirts of Harrogate in North Yorkshire, on the estate of
Harewood House. Fans today still visit the areas of Arndale and Esholt as
this is the original home of the still popular ITV show. It is still
possible to visit The Woolpack, the fictional public house used as the
shows main center point.
