I live in the sleepy little village of Oakworth. Here's what Wikipedia has to say on the place:

Oakworth is a small village in the county of West Yorkshire, England, near Keighley, by the River Worth. The name "Oakworth" indicates that the village was first established in a heavily wooded area.
Oakworth is a stop on the route of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. Oakworth Station was used in the filming of the original version of The Railway Children by Edith Nesbit.
Holden Park is a historic house once owned by Sir Isaac Holden, an inventor who is said to have invented the Lucifer match and revolutionised the process of wool carding. He also owned Oakworth Hall

The Library Tower/US Bank Tower has the highest helicopter pad in the world. The reason all of LA's buildings have flat tops is due to a code which requires a flat top with a helicopter pad to make evacuation go faster, if there's an earthquake.
