3. The village where Emmerdale is set was originally called ‘Beckindale’ but was changed to ‘Emmerdale’ in 1994
In honour of being the birth place of such an amazing show, the village of Beckindale decided to actually rename themselves ‘Emmerdale’. This was a big commitment, but it just shows that this is part of their history and forever will be! How cool would it be to tell people that you’re from Emmerdale?!
