The Yorkshire Dales forms the latest scenic backdrop to a Harry Potter film as the young wizard's latest adventure - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - begins its journey to the silver screen.
Grassington Moor and Malham Cove have been the site of filming for the latest production, which will be released in 2011.
Characters will be superimposed using computer-generated technology on background footage shot of the landscape.
Supervising location manager for the film Sue Quinn said: "We have been doing a lot of filming in Scotland and we wanted somewhere different that had a certain isolation so we came to the Yorkshire Dales National Park."
The appearance of the area in the film may encourage more people to buy some walking equipment
and explore the scenery there for themselves.
Scottish landscapes seen in previous Potter films include the vicinity around the curving viaduct north of Tyndrum on the Glasgow to Fort William line in real life - used by the Hogwarts Express.
