HOLMFIRTH has played host to a New York columnist.
Terry Alessandri arrived in the town with husband Alex - to see the setting of one of her TV favourites.
Terry has been writing a column about TV show Last of the Summer Wine, filmed in Holmfirth, since last March.
The column is featured on Holmfirth's official Summer Wine website and is entitled Summer Wine and the City - a cheeky nod to cult New York-based show Sex and the City, featuring fictional columnist Carrie Bradshaw.
Although it does not have the sex - or the city - Terry's column has been a hit with Summer Wine fans on both sides of the Atlantic.
Americans seem to love the gentle pace of the world's longest running sitcom and half the hits on the Summer Wine site are from the USA.
Terry said: "We love the fact that it is good wholesome family entertainment. There is no violence. The scenery is also breathtaking."
Terry was invited to write the column by Patrick Brooke, editor of the Summer Wine website, when he spotted her comments on a Summer Wine internet discussion group.
Terry said: "Patrick thought my pieces were chatty so he asked me to do it. I work full-time as an accountant, so it was harder than I thought but I make time."
Terry gives episode synopses and comments about the show.
She includes the Summer Wine broadcast times for USA TV stations to make sure her fellow fans do not miss an episode.
Terry said: "The shows are really popular in America. I write my column about what is showing there, although we are a couple of years behind the UK."
Terry and Alex will stay in Holmfirth until Saturday.
Already they have visited the Summer Wine museum, eaten at the Wrinkled Stocking Cafe and taken the Summer Wine tour bus from Sid's Cafe to the series' film locations.
They also visited Upperthong Church to see where Bill Owen - who played Compo - is buried.
Terry plans to return to Holmfirth in 2007 with fellow fan Liz Nichols, from Virginia, for the show's 35th anniversary celebrations.
