About Holmfirth

Holmfirth is a small town situated six miles south of Huddersfield town centre. Once a centre for pioneering film-making, Holmfirth more recently became well known for the location of the situation comedy "Last of the Summer Wine". The town grew from a corn mill and bridge in the 13th century, before rapidly expanding 300 years later due to the growing cloth trade and the better business of local quarries.
