This Is England '86

Recommended Posts

I went to Sipelia Works on Cadman Street yesterday to have a small engineering job done.

They told me that location shots for a new 4 part series for Chanel 4 have just been filmed there.

"This Is England '86 will film over eight weeks with all the key cast returning to reprise their original roles. Screen Yorkshire supported This Is England '86" through its Production Fund and provided locations and crewing support. The four episodes will be broadcast on Channel 4 in the autumn.

I believe this Channel 4 series is a spin-off from Shane Meadows' very successful BAFTA-winning film 'This Is England' from two or three years back. The production company behind it is the Sheffield based Warp Films, who currently have 'Four Lions' on general release across the UK. That was also mostly shot in Sheffield I think.

They came and had a snoop around our scout hut a cople of months ago with a view to using it as a location for a couple of scenes - A cheap wedding venue and a UBO? Can't have been suitable as they never returned.

found it very entertaining watching.

I am going to have to watch it again, this time for the plot, as the first time I watched it, I was going

"oh, I know that building!"

"I lived on that street" etc, etc.

If it wasn't based in Sheffield I wouldn't be watching it? Does anyone know where the Hospital was - looked very quiet. And the building used for the wedding - that was what the location scout visited us for.

... the hospital scenes were filmed in the real Hallamshire Hospital !

....the Register Office was filmed at the Steel City Community Centre on Shiregreen Lane , and nearby old Colley Youth Club was also featured !

It was Ironside road where lol and her boyfriend had the flat, but for the sake of a couple of hundred yards, it's not far out.... The Paper Shop as was ,which was on the Blackstock Road (Hemsworth) shops was the video store where Shaun had the job working for the Asian chap.

Totally off topic PT, Hartleys fruit shop have just celebrated thier 50th Anniversary!!. They had balloons up in the shop and everything!!

The shop is still just like walking into a kind of 'Arkwrights' type of shop with the old shelving etc
