The Stripey Badger in
All Creatures Great and Small

Grassington is the location for the fictional market town of Darrowby in the new series of All Creatures Great & Small. In 2020, The bookshop was transformed into grocers G F Endleby, and the coffee shop & kitchen was transformed into a private house, behind whose doors the actors and crew assembled in between takes.

All Creatures at The Stripey Badger

Our shop and cafe are en-route to the Herriot Surgery, 'Skeldale House', which means that much of the filming is taken of our premises and much of the action taken outside our doors.  We even appear on all the opening credits!


We were lucky enough to meet most of the cast and all of the film crew - who were very friendly and approachable.  We hope that some of the images shown in this gallery, taken during the filming of the first series, will give you an idea of what went on outside our doors.

The actors in All Creatures Great and Small are frequent visitors!
