Peter Sallis laid to rest near Holmfirth

It has been confirmed that Peter Sallis has been laid to rest alongside his Last of the Summer Wine co-star Bill Owen at St John’s Church, Upperthong, near Holmfirth, which was always his wish.

The burial took place following a small, quiet, private service in the church on Wednesday 21 June 2017.

Fans of the show will be touched that the two actors, who played Compo and Clegg together for three decades, are at rest together in the hills of Summer Wine Land.

    I’m only 33 but have fond memories of Watching Last Of The Summer Wine every week in the early 90’s. It grew to be one my favourite tv shows and always puts a smile on my face. I have managed to watch most episodes over the years thanks to repeats. It’s so lovely to know they are resting next to each other.
