I think it's quite a nice place, but a bit of a cliche type place. It also needs to be careful - too cool and you'll get a load of SUV-driving yummy mummies persuading their rich husbands to move there. Property prices through the roof, fences and hedges thrown up everywhere, and every cheeky trail closed by people who have paid "damned good money" to exclude others from their private idyll.
I still like the Viz euphemism for lesbianism - 'on the road to Hebden Bridge'.
Oh, and that car park in the town (near the coin-operated bogs) is the coldest place in the known universe. I've been warmer getting changed next to a reservoir after a winter ride than getting changed there!
