Holsworthy

Holsworthy, with its shops, pubs, restaurants, cafes, centred on the main square,  is a charming and small ancient market town. The own has a leisure centre complete with indoor heated swimming pool.  Next to the leisure centre is a large  park with childrens swings, climbing frames etc.  On wednesday's. the town's old market day, an open air pannier market takes over the town square and this is the day the farmers traditionally came into town from the surrounding area.  Holsworthy is best known for its famous Pretty Maid ceremony when every  july  a fair is held and a deserving church going maiden of the town is declared the 'pretty maid' with a big ceremony in the town and a 'furry dance' finishing at the town's park.  By the car park is the town's museum, with many  interesting exhibits, donated by local people and wonderfully describing the traditions and history of the town.  See this writer's mum in a 1930's photo of the group May Day early morning walk to bathe ones faces in the dew of the local hedgerows!-a local traditional that has now sadly died out!
