There is word today of some additional gorgeous landscape from the UK that will feature in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. While many beautiful locations have been filmed, notably the beaches of Wales and the highlands of Scotland, today there is news that the Yorkshire Dales will be seen in the final Harry Potter films. The report says:

 "Grassington Moor and the impressive 80m limestone crag of Malham Cove will feature in the film, which is directed by David Yates. Sue Quinn, supervising location manager for the movie, said: “We have been doing a lot of filming in Scotland and we wanted somewhere different that had a certain isolation so we came to the Yorkshire Dales national park. It’s very beautiful here.”

Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority chairman Carl Lis said: “It’s good to think that the iconic landscape of the Dales is going to be seen by a worldwide audience in the next Harry Potter film.“We get dozens of requests every year from film companies wanting to shoot in the national park, which shows just how special an area it is.”

You can read more about Grassington here, and Yorkshire Dales here with additional photos of the cove here and here.
