Where is Gunpowder filmed?

The BBC's new three-part history drama follows the story of the Gunpowder Plot attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605. A group of English Catholics conspired to kill King James I in order to restore a Catholic to the throne. The foiling of the plot -it's not a spoiler, it's history- is still celebrated every year at Guy Fawkes Night.

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington leads the plotters, taking on the role of Robert Catesby. Tom Cullen (Downton Abbey, Knightfall) plays Guy Fawkes, Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) appears as the spymaster of the King, and Liv Tyler (Lord of the Rings) also stars as Lady Anne Vaux.

Gunpowder was filmed in Yorkshire, England. We will be updating and expanding this report about the filming locations of the series with new details, as more information about the show is revealed. Contains no (more) spoilers!
