I’m a location scout working on films, television programmes and commercials in the North of England. This site is not a location database or library. There are plenty of those online already, my preference would be the lovely people over at North-West Locations and Yorkshire Locations.

Before we start, huge respect to the original and best Scouting NY, the inspiration for this blog. This is where I work:


The M62 is the motorway which gives this blog its name, and where I spend far too much time sitting in traffic.


“The North, where England tucks its shirt into its underpants” (thanks Simon Armitage)


This blog is for everybody interested in the North of England as much as I am.

If you have any questions about the locations featured here, if would like book me for some location scouting, or if you would like me to remove a photo or point out mistakes, please get in touch info@m62locationscout.com.
