Behind the scenes of the Bartons' car crash - Videos - Emmerdale - ITV

Behind the scenes of the Bartons' car crash - Videos - Emmerdale - ITV
So poor John Barton didn't survive the spectacular car crash scene filmed here out on Ilkley Moor last month. Find out more from this behind the scenes clip!

A few questions you've asked...

1 Where were the first shots (low loader and stuntman) fimed? Just over from Keighley Gate (Whetstone Gate on maps) on the road back across to Silsden

Is the drop off from the Cow & Calf Rocks really that big? Yes

3 Can we see where the filming took place? Yes indeed. Ilkley Moor is open access land

How long did filming take? 3 nights. We could see that the floodlights were still on at 3 o'clock in the morning!
