No. Heckmondwike is, closely followed by Cleckheaton and Liversedge.

By the way, don't forget Robin Hood was a Yorkshireman himself; he came from a place called Little Matlock, near Loxley in Sheffield (hence "Robin of Locksley").

Being a West Yorkshire person, I know how "Slaithwaite" is pronounced, and "Linthwaite" for that matter. Of course, my favourite placename around the Udders area is "Skelmanthorpe", which certainly isn't pronounced how it looks :)

Hood was a Yorkshireman? It's the "giving" part of the "giving to the poor" that makes this theory controversial.

...and a mate of mine owns a pub in Little Matlock called..."The Robin Hood". Spookey eh?

Sh, already. So I should have waited until I could look Robin Hood up on imdb or something, but I was bored at work. Is that a crime, O Lord?

I can't believe Errol Flynn's not winning this.

No. I am uncultured. Does it start with his mum buying the farm? All Disney films start with the mum buying the farm. It's The Rules.

I am just commenting to use my Robin of Sherwood icon. (Yes, that is me, aged six, as an extra in one of the Jason Connery episodes.)

I notice you avoided even mentioning the Costner one. Quite right too, hoot though it be.
Ever see the Robin-as-an-old-man one with Sean instead of Jason Connery?
