Yorkshire Dales, TV Soap Country
We visited the sights of where “The last of the Summer Wine” was filmed in and around Holmfirth area. First we went to “Sid’s cafe” where we enjoyed lunch and had our photographs taken next to the pictures of the cast. Then we had a tour on a vintage bus that took us around the town and the countryside where different scenes were filmed.
In the pretty village of Esholt we had a drink in “The Woolpack” of Emmerdale fame.
We drove across the Yorkshire country park to Goathland – “Heartbeat” country. We had lunch outside a lovely cafe before visiting Scripp’s garage where we saw the old police cars that were used in the television show.
At Wensleydale Creamery we visited the amazing factory and watched a demonstration of cheese making. Then we tasted all the different cheeses before visiting the museum.
During our trip we also visited and amazing chocolate factory. We saw brilliant items made out of chocolate which consisted of shoes, handbags, footballs and many more extravagant shapes.
We went to the ‘Sheep Fair’ in Masham. There was a market, a huge number of sheep breeds and many stalls which everyone enjoyed. We watched a ‘sheep race’, a display of a man shearing sheep and then some ‘dancing’sheep.
