    1. Sheffield holds a strong claim to be Europe's greenest city with an estimated two million mature trees - four for every resident.

  4. That's bigger than I thought, too -- about the size of a city I enjoyed living in for a number of years -- not too big and not too small, with a feel of being part of or knowing all that was going on.
