Three old men from Yorkshire who have never grown up face the trials of their fellow town citizens and everyday life and stay young by reminiscing about the days of their youth and attempting feats not common to the elderly.
Did You Know?
Holmfirth was chosen as the setting for Last of the Summer Wine after Barry Took
made a programme about Working Men's Clubs at nearby Burnlee WMC. When producer James Gilbert
was looking for a location for an episode of Comedy Playhouse
(1961), Barry Took recommended Holmfirth. That episode was developed into the series "Last of the Summer Wine". See more
Why d'you think it is they won't let me go?
You've *been* shot at. Now it's somebody else's turn.
It's because they're ashamed of me. Because I'm scruffy.
I wouldn't say "scruffy". Would you say "scruffy"?
Yes, I'd say "scruffy".
