A Huddersfield village has been thrust into the TV limelight once again.

Lights, camera, action has been called in Marsden where filming has started for a gripping new BBC crime thriller.

The four-part series is called In The Dark and its cast and crew have already been spotted around the village ahead of filming expected to start in the centre next week.

Manchester Road and Mount Road have already been used for filming, as well as locations near to the Old Goods Yard where film crews were parked last weekend.

They will be there again this weekend when Marsden’s Cuckoo Day takes place, but space will be available for the public.

The village centre will become the focus for the crew next Monday and Tuesday, when filming will include Peel Street.

Jean Hall, one of the managers at Motormans Cafe, allowed the crew to use their car park on Monday.

“They didn’t film the cafe but from what I could tell it looked like they went down Mount Road to the Carriagehouse and then came back,” she said.

“They were supposed to be there from 2pm to 2am but it took longer than they expected.

“It was quite noisy and I was worried they would keep some of our neighbours up so I don’t think we’ll let a crew stay that late again.

“I think I’ll watch it on TV to see if I can spot any of the locations.

“It’s quite nice that crews want to film around here but it can disrupt your lifestyle a bit.”

Marsden is no stranger to film crews.

The village was the setting for the nursing drama Where The Heart Is and provided a backdrop to the cult comedy The League of Gentlemen.

And back in 1979, Hollywood star Richard Gere was there for the war drama Yanks.

In The Dark is the latest small screen crime thriller to be shot in our area which is now firmly on the map of top UK filming locations.

The Will O’Nats in Meltham and Grappolo restaurant in Lockwood have been among the locations eagle-eyed folk have spotted while watching the BBC One Happy Valley series which stars Sarah Lancashire as a police sergeant exploring a murky world of drugs, kidnapping, ransom and violence.

Michael Palin was in Slaithwaite for another BBC One series Remember Me in late 2014. He played an elderly man whose dark secret is unravelled when he returns to his home.

BBC One blockbuster Jamaica Inn was filmed only a few months earlier which re-imagined Farnley Tyas and Crow Edge as the forbidding and windswept moors of Cornwall.

The three-parter was based on Daphne du Maurier’s gothic novel.

The former Kirklees College on New North Road also got a makeover the same year for three-parter Black Work, which starred Sheridan Smith as police officer Jo Gillespie.

And ITV’s DCI Banks was filmed in Farnley Tyas in 2013 and was based on Peter Robinson’s Inspector Alan Banks novels and starred Stephen Tompkinson.

And hit BBC Two series Peaky Blinders, the early 20th century gangster drama starring Cillian Murphy, featured Brooke’s Mill in Armitage Bridge for several scenes in its first 2013 series.
