The small West Yorkshire village of Holmfirth and the surrounding countryside form the familiar backdrop to the long-running television series, "Last of the Summer Wine". In this book, the writer of the series sets out to capture the rugged beauty of the haunts of Compo, Clegg, Seymour Utterthwaite and Nora Batty, from the warm glow of Sid's Cafe to the bleak light on the wind-torn and isolated farms with thick-coated horses braced against the elements on steep hillsides. The author uses entries from Clegg's wry journal to accompany the photographs by Paul Barker, who has lived near Holmfirth all but eight years of his life.
