Comatus Eboraci, patria Domini ipsius. Yorkshire, God’s own country.

Last stronghold of the Brigantes (perhaps)

Ingleborough Hill, Yorkshire Dales

Locorum in orbe terrarum modo duo sunt meliora quam comatum Eboraci. Sic liber « Planes Solus » dixit. Valde comatus est optimum locum in Europa: habet colles amoenos, civitates suaves, athletas Olympicas (exempli gratia, Jessica Ennis et Lizzie Armitstead), eruditissimas universitates literarum scientificaeque, cibum delectabilem (sicut reubarbarum et placentem Eboraciensem), pictores peritissimos (e.g., Davidum Hockney), cantatores argutos (e.g., Simias Arcticos) et Guillelmus Hague. Anno MMXIV birotatores Cursus Franciae Eboracia profiscentur et iter per Olicanam facient. Verum est, ut approbo qui hunc habitem, comatus Eboraci optimus est.

Only two places in the world are better than Yorkshire. This is what the publication ‘Lonely Planet’ said.  Certainly the county is the best place in Europe. It has beautiful hills, fine cities, Olympic athletes (for example, Jessica Ennis and Lizzie Armistead), the most learned universities for science and the humanities,  delicious food (like rhubarb and Yorkshire pudding), the best artists (e.g., David Hockney), talented musicians (e.g., The Arctic Monkeys) and William Hague. In 2014, the riders in the Tour of  France, will set off in Yorkshire and will travel through Ilkley.  I can confirm as someone who lives here that it is true, the county of Yorkshire is the best.
