These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
This detailed map covers Holmfirth, famous today as the setting for much of 'The Last of the Summer Wine'. At the start of the 20th century it was also notable for the postcards being produced by a local artist and photographer, James Bamforth; he also produced short, silent films with local people as actors. Our map covers most of the village and features include Holy Trinity church, railway station, Cinder Hills, Under Bank, Swan Bank Mill, Gully, New Gate, New Fold, Cliff, Lane End, New Town, Bridge Fold, Ribbleden Mills, Bridge Mills, Victoria Square, Hill, Victoria Iron Works, Dyson's Mill, Prickleden Mill, Lower Mills, Spring Lane Mills, Riverside Mills, St John's church. In the top right corner is part of the village of Wooldale, incl Wooldale Hall, Kirkroyds. A directory of Holmfirth is included on the reverse. With indiviudal houses neatly delineated this is a splendidly detailed portrait of a much loved village - even for those who have never visited in person.
