Famous for Emmerdale!

After reading the tips about Esholt from alyf1961, a fellow VTer, I was inspired to visit Esholt in West Yorkshire. It's a village that gained fame from the British soap opera, Emmerdale.

The village was the filming location between 1976 to 1996 and today you can still trace the Emmerdale fame in The Woolpack pub and the village shop/post office that still sell Emmerdale souvenirs.

I'm not an 'Emmerdale' fan but I was intrigued to visit the village and enjoy my trip with an open mind and perhaps learn more about its 'Emmerdale' fame!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Famous for Emmerdale!

    Can't say I've ever heard of "Emmerdale" before, but Esholt seems like a nice little place to visit on a day trip :o)
