When the TV people chose Goathland as the setting for the long-running series Heartbeat (where it is called Aidensfield) they knew what they were doing. Celebrity has brought many visitors to the village, and means that there are more shops than would be expected in similar sized places, but the village has the room within it and outside to cope with the numbers without losing any of its charm. Situated 500 feet above sea level in the very heart of the North York Moors National Park, Goathland is a tiny settlement of some 450 souls, but it retains those basic necessities of a vibrant village: a post office, a pub (or in this case more than one), and a church: set in a walled churchyard St Mary’s in Goathland is an archetypal English country church, looking older than it really is – the church was built in 1896. The name Goathland probably has its roots in Viking times, though it is thought there has been a settlement in the spot for some 3,000 years. The village is of course well-known to millions of TV viewers, and fans of Heartbeat visit the place in droves. A different generation is now drawn to the place by Goathland Station, used in the Harry Potter movies as Hogsmeade Station. Goathland Station looks like it would have done in Victorian times, with a footbridge that seems to have been scaled up from a Hornby train set. The station is on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway that runs from Pickering in the south to Grosmont in the north, though trains now continue to Whitby. At Grosmont too the line links up with the national network, so visitors can get to Goathland by train, arriving in style in the NYMR’s steam or old diesel multiple-unit trains. There are some wonderful cottages in the spacious village, with plenty of green space within it. Now reverted to being village greens grazed by black-faced sheep, these were for a time a 9-hole golf course for nearby Whitby. Around the village there is the wonderful moorland countryside, purple heather in summer and often white with snow or frost in winter. And around Goathland itself there are various waterfalls, the most famous and spectacular of which is the 70-foot Mallyan Spout, though Water Ark with its lovely bridge and Thomason Foss are equally pretty. There is naturally good walking aplenty in the area, but the attractions of the village itself may well persuade travellers to spend time there that they had expected to dedicate to the beautiful countryside.
