Places of Interest - Holmfirth
Holmfirth town centre still draws in the crowds and is known locally as “Little Hollywood”, Holmfirth is the renowned location of the TV classic - Last of the Summer Wine.
Although the show came to an end after 39 years on our television screens, the innocence of Last of the Summer Wine and its loveable characters remains dear to our hearts. Reminisce over tea and cake at Sid’s café outside the church, watch old episodes and giggle over pieces of original set at the Summer Wine Exhibition.
But there's another reason thousands of visitors flock every year. Sitting in the heart of the breath taking Holme Valley, this picture-postcard town is popular with walkers and wildlife lovers alike. Enjoy the plethora of walking routes around the Holme Valley. Digley Reservoir is a local beauty spot with wonderful views; and the Holme Valley Riverside Way weaves alongside the River Holme from Magdale to Holme.
Cyclists stamina is tested to the hilt at Holme Moss - whose length and difficulty make it a frequent inclusion in UK cycle races including the Tour of Britain.
