Events on and around the Links

Filming on Links Place / Links Gardens, Monday March 11

Filming for a new Netflix detective series (a Nordic noir type drama) is taking place on Monday 11th March. There is likely to be traffic disruption as roads are closed temporarily and equipment moved in and out of the area, as well as actual filming. Nearby neighbours will get a letter delivered nearer the time with more details. Others would just be wise to seek an alternative route that day. If you’re interested, here is the background to the series
