Halifax is one of the filming locations for ‘The English Game’ a 6 part dramatic representation of a true story from 1879 which is due to be screened next year on Netflix.

The cameras and crew were seen in July in Saltaire, a ‘model village’ built by the mill owner Sir Titus Salt about 10 miles away, but this week they’ve been spotted round and about Halifax in such varied locations as Brackenbed Lane and Manor Heath, which incidentally has also been seen this week on C4 in  ‘Ackley Bridge’.
