Where We Are
Holmfirth where Holmvalley is situated is in the county of West Yorkshire
and it is
famous as the setting for the BBC television series 'Last of the
Summer Wine'. But it is also an area of outstanding natural beauty,
surrounded by the hills and close to the moors and The Dark Peak area of
Derbyshire. There are an abundance of walks in the vicinity, ranging
from easy to very tough.
My 'Middleton' ancestors have lived
around the Holme Valley for the past 300 years, so if you have a
Middleton as an ancestor in this area you are probably related to me
some how. The Middleton's from this neighbourhood have migrated to
other parts of the world, such as the USA and Australia.
Holmvalley is actually Viv
Middleton's Kennel Club prefix
Viv has been an Obedience Instructor at several
different training classes for many years.
She became a Kennel Club Obedience Judge in 1989 after undertaking
several stewarding and scribe duties, up to Championship Class, and
working 3 different dogs. She has been a Kennel Club Associate since
1994. She has been an instructor at Newsome & District Training Club
and is willing to take dogs and owners for private lessons. This can be
puppy socialisation, obedience or behavioural problems.
