All Creatures Great and Small

In July 2019 we were approached by a locations scout asking if we would be interested in the pubs frontage being used for a new tv show later in the year….
We thought that seemed like fun so said “yes”.

Little did we know that this would be the beginning of a HUGE adventure

The Devonshire was used in the 2020 series of All Creatures Great and Small on Channel 5, a remake of the beloved tv show based upon the “James Herriott” books following a Scottish vet on his move to a sleepy Dales village; Darrowby.
At the time we did not know what the show would be so to find out that it was going to be a remake of All Creatures Great and Small was incredible.
The show from Playground Entertainment and Channel 5 was so well received worldwide that it has been commissioned for a second (and subsequent we hope) seasons.
Being able to watch the whole process, how the buildings are dressed, what is “real” and what is a prop (ask us about the portico on the vets or the Post Box) was fascinating.
The cast and crew have used The Devonshire as their green rooms during filming and to stay as well as featuring on the show.
Check out our wall of photos taken during the filming and ask us for details.

Once seen, never forgotten
