Holsworthy is a charming and small ancient market town. There are shops, pubs, restaurants and a few cafes. A leisure centre with indoor heated swimming pool. A huge park with childrens swings, climbing frames etc. Every wednesday the town square has an open air pannier market and traditionally this is the day the farmers come into the 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!
