Ellie Harrison and Adam Henson explore the town of Holmfirth, and the Yorkshire countryside that surrounds it.

For thirty-seven years, Holmfirth has provided the backdrop to BBC favourite Last of the Summer Wine. Now, with the show about to start its final series, Adam Henson and Ellie Harrison look at the influence it has had on the town, and they speak to some of its stars.

The area around Holmfirth has had its driest spell for decades, but that's not necessarily bad news for one of England's' most northerly vineyards, which can be found just outside the town. It looks like being a bumper year for their grapes, as Ellie finds out.

If you're planning a career in managing trees, this area of the country is the place to head for. In the forest near Holmfirth, trainee tree surgeons learn their craft - and Adam joins them up in the canopy.

Last of the Summer Wine is famous for its quirky characters, and in the Holm Valley, art mirrors real life. Adam and Ellie meet some of the local personalities who give this area its special feel.
