Locations in This Sporting Life

I *think* that Bolton Abbey, northwest of Ilkley, was the place where Machin and Mrs Hammond spent a day out in the country. In those days, they could have gone by train from Wakefield to Bolton Abbey.Near the end of the film, when the rugby team are on the coach on the way back from a match, a sign to the newly-opened Stourton railway marshalling yard in south-east Leeds is seen briefly as the bus passes under a railway bridge.

By the way, I've just seen the email you sent me in January about my Ladykillers site I've added a link to Reel Streets from there.

I'm sure I'll have many happy hours looking up the locations used in all my favourite films on Reel Streets!
