Subject: RE: Ilkley moor - other songs about it?
All of which puts me in mind of a line from one episode of "The Last Of The Summer Wine" which has nowt much to do wi't' Moor, but says a lot about the north of England.

"D'ye see that chimney?" (indicating a tall disused factory chimney in the background) "They do say as 'ow, on a clear day, ye can see Manchester from 't' top o' that chimney."

"Aye.... there's allus a snag, ain't there."
