Solihull News - - PROPERTY TALK -

There are some peo­ple who may think the small Peak Dis­trict town of Cardale – fea­tured in the TV drama se­ries Peak Prac­tice – is real.

But it wasn’t, although dur­ing the 10 years that the ITV drama ran from the mid- 1990s on­wards it of­ten seemed like it was.

Orig­i­nally star­ring Kevin Whately, Si­mon Shep­herd and Amanda Bur­ton, it ran for 12 se­ries and fol­lowed the work­ing and per­sonal lives of doc­tors work­ing in the made- up ru­ral com­mu­nity.

Cardale was in fact a TV amal­gam of sev­eral vil­lages in the Peak Dis­trict and, although film­ing also took place in the Stafford­shire vil­lage of Lon­gor, other lo­ca­tions in­cluded the vil­lage of Crich, Win­ster, Fritch­ley, Mat­lock, Belper and Ashover.

For Peak Prac­tice fans, there’s now a chance to own a prop­erty fea­tured in the se­ries.

It’s The Old Bank House in Win­ster which ap­peared sev­eral times in the se­ries as one of the char­ac­ter’s homes.

The prop­erty is a com­bi­na­tion of three pe­riod prop­er­ties in­clud­ing the vil­lage’s post of­fice, bank and chemist, which are now a sin­gle home.

“The Old Bank House presents a very spe­cial and rare op­por­tu­nity to buy a lov­ingly re­stored, unique home filled with char­ac­ter,” says es­tate agent Chris Charl­ton, head of res­i­den­tial at Sav­ills Not­ting­ham.

“It’s like noth­ing I’ve ever seen be­fore and the cur­rent own­ers have linked the three prop­er­ties to­gether
