This panorama taken at Norridge Bottom, Holmfirth, England, it portray part of the festivities that took place during the second Holmfirth Festival of Food and Drink which took place 21st – 23rd September 2007. In it we can observe activities such as: Friendship, Drink and Food, Children, Pets and Stalls, all of which together sustain the community spirit.

Like much of West Yorkshire, the development of the Holme Valley was linked to textiles. Moorland sheep, fast flowing streams and rivers, weavers’ cottages and impressive mills bear testimony to the tradition of producing some of the world’s finest woollen yarns and cloths. Today, local firms still supply material to some of the top names in the fashion world. From the centre of Holmfirth narrow alleys or ‘ginnels’ climb steeply to weavers’ hamlets, their cottages recognisable by long rows of mullioned windows designed to let in maximum light. Street names such as ‘Rattle Row’ evoke the clatter of handlooms. ‘Wuzzing holes’ are still visible on Bunkers Hill, where the wet wool was spun (or ‘wuzzed’) in baskets suspended from these holes.
