National Park to feature in Harry Potter film

[Wednesday 25 November 2009]

The beautiful scenery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is set to be seen by millions of people all over the world – in the new Harry Potter film.

Film crews were at Malham Cove and on Grassington Moor above the village of Grassington last week capturing some of the National Park’s fantastic landscapes for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which is directed by David Yates and is due to be released in two parts in November next year and July 2011.

The film footage and still photographs will be used as background shots, which will then have characters superimposed on to them.

Authority chairman Carl Lis said: “It’s good to think that the iconic landscape of the Dales is going to be seen by a world-wide audience in the next Harry Potter film.

“We get dozens of requests every year from film companies wanting to shoot in the National Park, which shows just how special an area it is.”

Sue Quinn, supervising location manager for the movie, said: “We have been doing a lot of filming in Scotland and we wanted somewhere different that had a certain isolation so we came to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It’s very beautiful here.”
