Famous Faces

23/11/2010

We went shopping to the supermarket in Settle at the weekend – and found ourselves pushing a trolley at the side of Alan Bennett.  Actually, we do see him quite often as he has a cottage nearby.

We used to see Thelma Barlow (Mavis from Coronation Street) regularly too but she has now moved away from the area.  Kate Ford ( Tracy Barlow from The Street shops in nearby Kirby Lonsdale – her family live locally and we have met Chris Chittell ( Eric Pollard from Emmerdale) several times when we have been walking on the fells.  Of course, Ingleton’s most famous son at the moment goes by the stage name of Tom Lister but is perhaps better known as Karl King from Emmerdale.  He lives in the village with his family and has done so all his life.

Mike Harding is often to be seen in the Naked Man Cafe as he now lives near Settle as does John Helliwell  from the band Supertramp.

Michael Portillo has filmed at the chapel and Julia Bradbury from Country file has been to the Dale recently.

Only last night we were watching Steve Coogan  and Rob Brydon in The Trip.  They were staying at nearby Hipping Hall and did a scene at Ribblehead Viaduct!

So far we haven’t had anyone famous stay with us – possibly the nearest we have got to this is a relative of a previous Chancellor of the Exchequer!
