Holmfirth & The Holme Valley - Last Of The Summer Wine Country

The gentle TV comedy Last of the Summer Wine has been filmed in and around Holmfirth for over thirty years, and the town gives its own affectionate - if knowing - nod back towards its TV alter-ego.

But Holmfirth's location on the border of the Peak District national park is another good reason for visiting. For a real challenge (and a work-out for your gears), try the steep pull up to Holme Moss, a climb which has featured in several professional bike races in recent years. A less energetic option would be to explore the quiet roads around the curiously named villages of Upper Thong and Nether Thong.

Moorland tracks worth exploring include Nether Lane, Magdalen Road and Harden Moss Road, between Holmbridge and Meltham.
