A team of film crew have been spotted at a pub in the district this week - prompting speculation among residents living nearby.

Apperley Bridge residents spotted film crew vans parked up in The George and Dragon car park on Monday night, which left questions about what was being filmed at one of their favourite local pubs.

One resident posted on Facebook to say that he lives ‘directly behind the pub’ and has been watching them film at night. He added that he saw they had used ‘a couple of older cars, a Volvo and a Vauxhall Cavalier,’ but he was intrigued to find out what they were being used for.

Other Facebook users took to the platform to discuss their ideas, with Josh Blinman, a freelance photographer who had who had visited the set adding: “It's an Amazon Mini-Documentary with 2 Episodes, based on a true story called ‘The Disappearance of Patrica Hall.”

When the T&A spoke to The George and Dragon pub, staff member Bradley Murphy, said: “I think it’s a mini crime series for ITV, but it’s for a case that happened in the early 90s about a woman that was missing. 

“The crew were filming in the car park and came into the pub to film a bit aswell, so it was quite exciting, but I didn’t spot any famous faces.”

Missing woman, Patricia Hall mysteriously vanished from her Pudsey home on January 27, 1992.

This year on the 30th anniversary of her disappearance, her sister, Christine Weatherhead began a campaign for a cold case review. If no new evidence emerges she wants the case shut – so an inquest can be held.

The documentrary is one of many television and film series that have been filmed in the district over the past few months.

In February, parts of Little Germany in Bradford city centre were transformed to look like 1990s Moscow for scenes for the fifth series of the hugely popular television drama, The Crown.

And just last week, famous faces including Siobhan Finneran and series writer and director, Sally Wainwright  were seen filming the new series of Yorkshire-based crime drama, Happy Valley in Thornton.

David Wilson Director of Bradford UNESCO City of Film said: "There are a number of really high-quality TV dramas filming across West Yorkshire at the moment.

"Judging by the number of enquiries we are dealing with at the Bradford Film Office, this trend is set to continue for some time to come, bringing more work opportunities to the area and eventually more screen tourism opportunities when the shows finally make it onto TV or into the cinema.”
