GUEST,Long Lankin Origins: Locating songs from locations mentioned (19) RE: Origins: Locating songs from locations mentioned 29 Jun 08

There are lots when you start looking:
# "Blackleg Miners" lists various pit villages in the North East and any mining disaster song will mention the mine where it happened.
# The Lyke wake Dirge lists high points on the North Yorks Moors.
# In the South West there is "Tavistock Goosey Fair", Lamorna Cove and various places such as Broadbury Downs, Ashwater, Broadwood and Callington.
# London has "The Lass of Richmond Hill" and "Polly of Paddington Green".
This is to name only a few. Mind you I have never thought of doing a grand tour of all the places.
