THE NORTHERN PEAKS

GREATER MANCHESTER     WEST YORKSHIRE     SOUTH YORKSHIRE     LAST OF THE SUMMER WINE COUNTRY
The far north and north-eastern parts of the Peak District include parts of Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire. Here some of England's finest industrial heritage can be found here along with some of it's finest countryside.
The Yorkshire parts are best known as the filming location for "Last of the Summer Wine", a delightful and gentle comedy series that ran for many years on BBC Television.
Skirting the northen edge of the Peak District is the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, a 20 mile (32km) waterway with 76 locks and a three mile (5km) long tunnel at it's summit, the longest such tunnel in the United Kingdom.
