OVER the weekend a film crew has been busy filming in Ben Rhydding at the parade of shops on Bolling Road.

Shoo Social Media were approached by Rollem Productions to be part of the a scene for the popular BBC series, The Syndicate; series 4 by Kay Mellor with other key locations across the area featuring in the programme.

Chris Morris, Managing Director of Shoo Social Media said: “This is a great opportunity for Ben Rhydding and the local business community. The village is a conservation area and thanks to the Ilkley Civic Society for preserving the history of the area and is a great asset to Ilkley. Our particular building has been in the Hatfield family since the 1950s and is still in its original format with very little modernisation which appealed to their location manager for this particular scene.”

Catch up with previous episodes of The Syndicate on BBC iPlayer and the new series will be aired in the spring 2021, if not earlier.
