Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Battle of Sowerby Bridge
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Battle of Sowerby Bridge
Small 'local geography nerd' point, living just up the road from Sowerby Bridge (pronounced 'Sorby') - Swan Arcade's version, and a number of other texts, namecheck *Shibden* Glen (in Halifax); I think it's the most distant location from Sowerby Bridge mentioned in the song, but still much closer (and more in-keeping) than Shipley Glen, which is the other side of Bradford.
