Goathland as a Contrasting Locality
Amenities, shops and tourism
Goathland has evolved into a tourist location, through the use of the village as a location for the popular TV series 'Heartbeat.' There are many of the TV locations to be seen around, the village, for instance, the station is well known to viewers. The village hall, Aidensfield Stores and the local primary school have all been used in the programme.
