No more baggy stockings.

It appears that Nora Batty (Kathy Staff) has gone to join Compo. Goodbye to a well loved actress. We'll miss the baggy stockings.

At least she will be able to attack Compo with her yard brush again.
Yes she will be sadly missed, the whole cast have brought a great deal of pleasure to many people for many years.

Gotta agree. When I was a kid I used to love Last of The Summer Wine and I think Nora Batty has become part of the British culture.

I live just down the road from Holmfirth where a lot of it was filmed. If you've never been it really is quite a beautiful little place and they've got a fabulous bookshop there.

Yes, St Peter is definitely going to have his hands full now, intervening in the amorous advances of Compo on Nora Batty. I reckon she will be issued a broom with a much longer handle to ward off 'that scruffy individual'. I hope she doesn't harm the ferrets he sometimes carries on his person though! :o)

I'm definitely going to miss those wrinkled stockings! TC.

did a great deal more than just play Nora Batty.

But of course, that's the role that she'll best be remembered for.

She brought a lot of enjoyment to a lot of people, a good thing to be remembered for.
