You can imagine the thing.This is Nora Batty's Front door, That is Compo's welly, This is the hill where, in episode 376, the bath slid off the back of the lorry with a naked Mr Armathwaite inside.This is the wall where in episode 3452 Great aunty Netherwhallop, fell off her bike and did an amusing somersault into a hay stack. etc etc etc.The question is will its passing help or hinder Yorkshire Tourist trade?Do people still visit the Cheers pub in Boston?

Its gentle silliness harks back to a simpler time and sense of fun that most of us here may struggle to remember, let alone relate to. Its passing is I suppose inevitable - but sad.
