Just finished the first series of FOTSW, and can recognize
many of the Holmfirth locations such as Back Lane, the
cobbles near Daisy Lane, the steps down to the Cafe (Hygienic
Fisheries), and all.

But where do they film the front of the Co-op, esp
where the buses and trucks go by?? Cannot place
that in Holmfirth at all.

Most of the pilot episode was filmed in the Beamish Open Air Museum. And yes the Co-Op is in Netherthong. I have a good photo of my husband sitting outside.

Do you mean the opening scene to Mending Stuarts leg ? Where Compo says "Lets explain are rules to new librarian"
This stumped me until l caught a glimpse of the steps of the co op when the lads were carrying the long ladder down the street
If you look in the distance on that shot you can see the old co op front steps. The shop fronts been dramatically changed and is almost unrecognizable.
This scene is shot south of the junction looking north on the A6024 where it meets Victoria St .Check out the roofline and chimneys above the bakers van.
