North Landing

North Landing is one of the principal landing places on Flamborough Head, used for centuries by local fishermen, and also by the RLNI to launch lifeboats. Also used in a scene of the recent "Dad's Army" film - Toby Jones was supposed to rescue Catherine Zeta Jones from the waves here, but on the first take he dropped her back in.

Roseberry Topping


2_fromgate.jpg

Roseberry Topping is a hill near Great Ayton in North Yorkshire, just over 1,000ft high. Its characteristic shape was formed by a collapse in 1912, probably due to ironstone and alum mining. The approach from the steep side, from the village of Newton-under-Roseberry is hard work. However, the walk is much easier from the parking area at the end of the road from Great Ayton Railway Station. Captain Cook's Monument can be easily accessed from the same starting point. The views are excellent. The Cleveland Way has an option to include it.

Dad's Army Film


High_Street_DA5.jpg

Dad’s Army was filmed in and around Bridlington in 2014 and also at Flamborough. The film was released in 2016. Jones' Butchers, Frazer's Funeral Parlour and The Marigold Tea Rooms were recreated from the shops on High Street. The Black Lion Pub became the Royal Oak, Walmington-on-Sea, and has stayed in that form ever since. The film stars Catherine Zeta–Jones, Toby Jones, Bill Nighy and many more well-known actors.
