TOP REASONS TO WATCH JERICHO
JERICHO IS A FEAST FOR THE EYES
Shot on location in Yorkshire, production crews spent the 23 weeks working in a variety of locations in and around the town. Much of the work has centered on a quarry at Outlane, which was used to recreate a navvies’ shanty town from the 1870s. There were also three sets built at the Northlight Film Studios in Armitage Bridge and location work at Pule Hill, Marsden, Meltham Moor, Golcar’s Colne Valley Museum and Netherton.
Shot on location in Huddersfield, the Jericho crew built an entire community from nothing for the series – much like the railway communities themselves. It certainly added to the authenticity of the series, even if it caused a few problems for the cast and crew. “When we were on the set, we really did feel like we were in the middle of nowhere. It was a huge feat to get up there every day to film and I remember that one of my toughest scenes was lugging those tapestry bags across the moors in episode one,” laughs Jessica Raine.
