Holmfirth is a small town in West Yorkshire, well-known as the filming location for Last of the Summer Wine. Being near the Peak District means that hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts visit the town throughout the year, not put off by the freezing temperatures of winter time. Summer is the busier season though, with temperatures reaching 16°C on average. Restaurants and pubs abound in Holmfirth, along with tea rooms and other eating places. Popular walks include a circular route around Digley Reservoir, Holme Valley Riverside Way, and Holme Moss View Point which lies 525 metres above sea level.
