Nott Derby

In my head, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire have this Springfield-Shelbyville style rivalry. In reality there's just a much milder rivalry between he two main settlements in each - Nottingham and Derby, and Mansfield and Chesterfield. I think this goes back to the Civil War, and the miner's strike didn't help (Notts didn't strike since its coal seams were deeper and had only been accessed comparitivley recently, so there was no risk of them being closed at the time).
I really should have warned people that they might learn something by reading this.
Anyway, I've got nothing against Derby(shire) personally, just doing my but for the team...
