DAY-trippers were all smiles on Saturday as they banished memories of their brush with death on a coach tour to Holmfirth last summer.
The group were left trapped in a bus after the brakes failed and it plunged off a steep road high above the town in June 2003.
Miraculously no-one was seriously hurt, but the drama meant the tour was abandoned.
This weekend, 35 members of the same group returned to Last Of The Summer Wine country.
And this time around the driver, from a different company, avoided the steep Dunford Road.
The tourists, all from Leicestershire, got the chance to see many famous locations featured in the hit TV comedy, including Nora Batty's house and Sid's Cafe.
But for some the memory of last year was still vivid.
Then, the driver swerved into the dry stone wall just yards from a row of cottages.
The 53-seater coach ended up hanging at 30° above a farmer's field and was propped up by a JCB while a rescue took place.
Tripper Rachel Devereux, 69, was relieved this year's trip was going without a hitch.
"For a lot of us it was very emotional," she explained. Some had been petrified when going down a hill.
"There were one or two that came last year who wouldn't come this year. They said the trauma would have been too much.
"There were one or two tears on the day.
"We had to come back sooner or later to get it out of our system. Some did and some didn't."
Arriving in Holmfirth, they toured the town on minibuses.
Mrs Devereux said: "The driver of the tour bus said if we hadn't stopped in the road where we did we wouldn't have been here today."
The passengers ranged in age from their 40s right up to their 80s.
The extended network of friends organise trips out twice a month.
They next plan to visit Skegness and the North Yorkshire Moors, where Heartbeat is filmed.
