Another great idea, and yes it is possible. I can even insert a video clip at each location. The question is, where do I get the data from? I know that 'A Private Function' was part filmed in Ben Rhydding (although I'm not sure where) and I also know that 'The Water Babies' was filmed in the area. I'm sure that lots of local TV series have filmed in the area too .... there was filming going on up at the Cow and Calf just before Christmas. However I haven't been able to find a database of these events, and thats what I require to make my maps.

Would it be possible to do something similar with one of your maps - showing locations where films, TV serials or even music videos have been filmed in and around Ilkley & district?
No Ley Lines, but I have added a map showing Ancient Sites, Stone Circles and Rock Art to the site.

I think the more people who know a "special site" exists, the more likely it is to be protected. Too much of our ancient heritage has been destroyed through ignorance.
