HolmfirthrooftopsThe Guardian writes that the mill town of Holmfirth is special and explains why:

last-of-the-summer-wine“Last of the Summer Wine, the world’s longest-running sitcom, has been filmed in Holmfirth and its environs for more than 30 years. If you’re a fan – and at its height the show had more than 18 million viewers – this is your chance to visit Nora Batty’s house, Sid’s Cafe or one of those hills where confused old men were forever racing to their doom in baths with wheels stuck on. Even if this is not your idea of sophisticated comedy, there’s no denying the beauty of the setting, from the unspoiled moorland to the old weavers’ cottages.”
