The "Summerwine Magic" Tour

The tour is a 10 mile journey round the film locations which were used in the filming of the world record breaking BBC comedy, “The Last Of The Summer Wine". It incorporates some of the most beautiful scenery found in the foothills of the Yorkshire Pennines.

As well as gaining an insight into the filming, there is a full running commentary on the history of the local area. Starting from the Rowan Mill, the tour lasts for 45 minutes where you will then be dropped off for lunch at the famous Compo's Café.

The tour is brought to you by Colin, who for nearly 20 years was the owner of "Sid’s Cafe" and was regularly involved with the cast and crew whilst filming took place on location, (actually appearing in one episode with the late, great Sir Norman Wisdom). Settle back in your seats and let Colin transport you through the beautiful hills and mystical valleys where time stands still. After your fish and chip lunch, you will be dropped back off at the Rowan Mill to begin your workshop.
