    Can anyone recognise either of these gateways.

    The first was used as the entrance to Wraithdale Hall in the 1983 ITV series The Outsider (Carol Royle, John Duttine) which was filmed mainly around Knaresborough.




    The second was used as the entrance to a girls' school in this week's episode of DCI Banks which is filmed mainly around Leeds, Harrogate and Nidderdale/Wharfedale.



    I wondered whether either of them were the gateways to Thornton Stud which can be see from the Thirsk-Northallerton road and from a minor road just north of Thirsk, but neither of the locations are those gateways.


    While we're at it, there's another building that was used (I think as the location for an art exhibition) in The Outsider:



    I feel as if I ought to recognise that one. I'm sure I've seen it somewhere before, either as a location or in real life.

    Ah! I've located the DCI Banks location. There was a better shot of the ivy-covered building in the distance and I though it looked like Swinton Park near Masham. Seems I was right: http://goo.gl/maps/D1eOj



    I should have thought of it sooner because the second episode of the same story features the Druid's Temple a few miles away. And I did recognise that one immediately!

    I thought the house was Oakwell Hall, it is Elizabethan but I'm having second thoughts
