It's in South Yorkshire, actually. However, I somehow missed that. Don't worry, I've brought it back. Actually, Sheffield is at 53.3811 N.

Very glad to see it back in its rightful place! (I know it's in South Yorkshire - I lived there for 10 years :) )

Huh, my mental map had Derby closer to Sheffield than it actually is, was confused when it wasn't accepted but Nottingham was...

Derby is at 52.92 N, so it gets only honourable mention here, I think.

yep, I have the same thing: the coalfields go Yorkshire then Derby then Notts, so in my mind Derby is further north than Nottingham.

I didn't known that rippon, Durham or Lancaster are cities. Wow this games an education.

I always believed Derby was farther north than Nottingham. I've never seen 52.92o given I always thought that 60 minutes became degrees as in 52.92 = 53.32?

You're mixing two different systems. You can use the decimal system as used here or degrees, minutes and seconds where there are 60 mins to a degree and 60 secs to a minute. E.g. 52.75° is the same as 52°45'

I've lived in and around Ripon for a long time. Locals get really touchy when visitors don't realise it's a city. I think if you over-react to people's understandable ignorance, it probably means you have small-town mentality. (apologies to everyone who lives in a small town, of course...).

I live in Ripon and to be honest it annoys me more when stuffy old Ripononians get their pants in a twist over calling it a city - it's a town with a cathedral! And a small town at that!

I can highly recommend it. York is a must, and Durham is lovely. And there is so much beautiful countryside as well.
