    German steel is good too. To be fair I'm talking about steel made for knives, rather than anything else :P

    What I find interesting about Sheffield is that it's so far south it almost isn't in Yorkshire, yet it seems to be the most thought of city when discussing the Yorkshire stereotype, which I find weird because the city is pretty much on most southern the border of the county, rather than the heart of it.

    I'm from North Yorkshire and consider this to be 'real Yorkshire' (because it's the biggest part, has tons of utterly unspoiled countryside and is home to both of Yorkshire's national parks), yet most of the nation seem to still think 'Sheffield' first, which is part of south Yorkshire which is chronically urban to me!

    Sheffield is so far from me that it pretty much feels like whole other region of the country, even though we're in the same county.

    Those are my thoughts on Sheffield!

    South Yorkshire is way better than North Yorkshire. North Yorkshire is where all the rich people live.

    Tut tut, stereotypes!

    The amount of absolute bagheads, along with northern England's version of rural rednecks who live in the that flat void where the A1 pushes between the Dales and the Moors, is quite revealing.

    Richest place I've seen in Yorkshire is Alwoodley in north Leeds. That's west Yorkshire.

    Admittedly there are wealthy spots in N.Yorks, but there are in all places. Harrogate is the winner of the Yorkshire toffs award but that has plenty of rough spots too. It's a fairly divided town. I've felt more surrounded by wealth in the villages and towns dotting the countryside west of Leeds.

    Also keep in mind, North Yorkshire (and therefore all of Yorkshire..)goes as far as the Tees Valley which includes Redcar, a known place of utter desolation which was only made much worse by the closure of its steel plant a year or two ago.

    One of the best things about our county is its size, I think. Colossal space. No wonder Yorkshire is classified as a region of special cultural significance.

    Anyway, sorry, I've gone off topic.

    When I think of Sheffield generally I think - "South Yorkshire, miles away, apparently the most friendly city in the country, and it's still in Yorkshire so that's fantastic."

    Yeah, you're right, Yorkshire is huge. I thought Middlesborough was in County Durham.
