Real location - supplementary entry

Not one I have visited, yet but 'The Culture Show' devoted a special to film locations including 'The Wicker Man', 'Trainspotting', 'Kes' and several others.
Interview with Tony Garnett about the making of Kes and the locations in Barnsley, Yorkshire, link.

Thanks for posting the link!

I'm a huge fan of 'Kes' - grew up in the area. I used to go cross-country running next to the ruined building where Billy finds the kestrel.

The film, of course, has legendary status in Barnsley!
