Some scenes for the previous series of Brassic were filmed near to the former Gannow Baths in Burnley the year before last, with other scenes shot around Rossendale.

Brassic follows the escapades of chief character Vinnie O'Neill and his five friends in the fictional northern English town of Hawley. The working class group commit various crimes to keep money in their pockets, but as they get older some of them start to wonder if there's more to life away from the town.
