Not to be outdone by the larger village of Castleton, the residents of the little settlement of Great Hucklow have been staging their own ambitious annual festival of illuminated Christmas trees ever since 1987. Organised by a voluntary organisation with the apt name of ‘Community Spirit’, the display entails virtually every building in the village being fronted by a large, brightly illuminated Christmas tree, with the addition of further trees on the village green. According to tradition, the top of each tree in the village is marked by a red light.
Not content with turning the picturesque main street of Great Hucklow into a dazzling ribbon of light, the group also arranges for two illuminated trees to be placed
