Countryfile Screens Special On Holmfirth


Holmfirth featured in a special edition of the BBC’s Countryfile programme last night. It was screened just after the first episode of what is to be the final series of Last of the Summer Wine, the sitcom which has been filmed in the village for almost four decades.

The show focused on how the series has affected the village, and also featured reports on other aspects of local rural life including peat-cutting, reservoirs and forestry.

Just in case you missed it (for example if you were watching Top Gear, which was on the other side at the same time) then the whole programme is available to watch again on the BBC iPlayer for the next week here.
