Where is Hidden filmed? Locations for the new BBC series Craith

Hidden where filmed

From the creators of Hinterland, Hidden is a new crime thriller from BBC Wales and S4C. The series was filmed back-to-back in English and Welsh, and has the title of Craith for Welsh audiences.

The five-part series starts when the body of a young girl is found in a river. Detective DI Cadi John, played by Sian Reese-Williams (Emmerdale), will have to solve the mystery murder, teaming up with sergeant Owen Vaughan (performed by Sion Alun Davies from Hinterland and Endeavour).

Hidden was filmed in North Wales, including the beautiful landscapes of Snowdonia. Location manager Paul Davies commented to local newspaper Daily Post that the crew has tried to show off the region as much as possible. We will update this spoiler-free report very soon with new filming locations from the show:

Where is Craith filmed
Detective inspector Cadi John lives in a small island called Ynys Castell, located in the strait which separates Anglesey from the rest of Wales. It's connected to the mainland by a causeway only passable when the tide is out.
