[show]In the earlier episodes, when George Ward (Stuart Golland) was in charge of the Aidensfield Arms, it was mentioned on several occasions that the fire in the bar had never been allowed to go out since the pub first opened. This was based on the real-life tradition at The Legendary Saltersgate Inn on the Whitby-Pickering road near the Hole of Horcum, a few miles from Goathland where the Aidensfield village scenes are filmed. It was said that the fire at the Saltersgate stayed lit for over 200 years, reputedly because an early publican had killed a customs officer and buried his body beneath the fireplace, and then lit a fire to avoid the hiding place being detected.
- Although it has never been mentioned on the show, Aidensfield has a charter from King Henry VIII that allows the people to maintain their own churches.
