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. Walkers will be tempted to head towards Black Hill, hated by Wainwright for its boot-sucking bogs but now looking altogether greener, thanks to moorland restoration work. Ramsden Clough is a favourite for those in the know, or explore the Kirklees Way past Digley and Bilberry reservoirs (the latter the cause of a terrible flood in Holmfirth in 1852).
