Date of video : Saturday, 6th May 2023
Location : Lee Quarry
In this video, we travelled to nearby Lee Quarry which is situated on the boundary of Bacup and not too far from Rawtenstall.
The quarry, which is a fully open ground, is now a mountain bike trail that was transformed by the Lancashire County Council. It is also used by walkers and runners too.
Our video show cases some of the locations within the quarry that were used to film season SIX and episode THREE of the Peaky Blinders, starring Cillian Murphy and Aimee-Ffion Edwards.
The episode follows Thomas Shelby as he goes on a quest to discover if and who may have placed a ‘curse’ on his family as his daughter, Ruby, is seriously ill in hospital.
Season Six – Episode Three – ‘Gold‘ first aired on the 13th March 2022.
