Subject: RE: Folklore: thatcher's language (roofing)
Some of the cider apples have interesting names. One I like is foxwhelp. I had a couple of these trees many years ago and remnants of a ciderpress, produced very locally from the Millstone Grit. There are still some to be seen in the wye where they ended up in the river instead of the boat.(Too much scrumpy I presume.)
