Signpost in Last Tango in Halifax

David Morton, Sigpost Officer

This article is from Signpost 64, Summer 2020

In March I caught up with episode two of the latest series of Last Tango in Halifax.  One of several subplots was the appearance of a Banksy-like giraffe painted on the white, end wall of Gillian's farmhouse. The farm is also the location of our sign S580, which in real life stands by the entrance to Knowl Farm, Norden, Rochdale, which is quite a long way from Halifax.  The best chance of seeing it on television comes at the point where cars are being driven up the hill and, at the last moment, turn sharp left into the farmyard.

I am indebted to our contractor John Hodgson for tipping me off in good time to watch out for it.  The sign, erected by John and I in 2019, is available for a commemorative plaque for any walker or walking group, for a donation of £375
