With its feet firmly planted in multicultural Yorkshire, Ackley Bridge is Channel 4’s laugh-out-loud school drama set in a small Yorkshire mill town. Numerous locations in Halifax were filmed to depict the fictional town of Ackley Bridge, whose school plays a central role in efforts to unite the divided white and Asian communities. Additional filming locations in Leeds and Bradford are also used throughout the series. Close-to-the-knuckles humour mixes with highly emotional drama in this TV series to create a searing vision of West Yorkshire. The series has been produced with investment from Screen Yorkshire’s Yorkshire Content Fund and is now filming its fourth season.
