Fountains Abbey will be appearing on Channel 5 show ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ tonight (Thursday).

Crews from the series filmed on the cricket pitch at the Studley deer park for scenes in season two.

A spokesperson for Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal said:

“Thank you so much to the All Creatures team for taking us on a journey back in time with the beautiful sets and costumes. Sorry about all the deer poo!”

The popular drama revolves around a trio of veterinary surgeons working in the Yorkshire Dales in 1937.

It’s based on ‘If Only They Could Talk’ by Alf Wight under the pen name of James Herriot.

Fountains Abbey have said they will reinvest all location fees directly back into the estate to help carry out essential work.

The show will air on Channel 5 tonight at 9pm.
