Hi Ray,
Just been exploring the site, its looking great.
Nice to hear your voice on the Barnsley Anthem and others.
Its like getting an early Christmas present which was unexpected and becomes greatly valued.
I will work my way through it and am sure have many pleasurable experiences.
Have a good Christmas and New Year

Ray - with reference to FOURPENCE A DAY, I may be being pedantic but I fail to see how this can be classified a Yorkshire song.

To my knowledge, Middleton - in- Teesdale has never been in Yorkshire.

Hazel
Just a little in Ray's defence regarding Middleton in Teesdale. Historically the River Tees was the Northern boundary of Yorkshire in the area of Middleton in Teesdale. I think that we in Yorkshire can claim a little of Middleton even though it is to the North of the river, it is very close. Probably some of the lead extracted could have come from the south of the river and could be described as "Yorkshire lead". Must admit all the mines do seem to be to the north of the river, the nearest being Snaisgill.
It is also very likely that some of the miners working there lived in Yorkshire.
Boundaries have been altered regularly and it is possible that Middleton was once in Yorkshire, I have, however found no proof of this, but will continue my efforts to claim Middleton in Teesdale as ours.

Hazel, You have my sympathies, but previously they stole a song from us in Lancashire. It was "The Cornstalk" it begins "There is a pub in Manchester" It's begining to look like all my father told me about them there Tykes is true!
Seriously, folks it's a great site making the material we know and love accesible to all, I wish it great success. Right Raymond ----that's another pint you owe me!
See you in the New Year, and start saving up.
Cheers Scowie.

ref nutty's comments. Dr Arthur Raistrick explained the relationship between lead mining and farming in times gone by. Miners were, by and large, farmers who had only got small holdings and to make a living they had to persue both jobs. So it can not be said with any certainty that the only people who mined lead came from towns on the north bank of the Tees(ie Durham). There would, in all likelyhood, have been miners from the farmsteads on the south bank of the Tees, ie from Yorkshire. Also a reading of the journals of the Northern Mines Research Society show existance of mines in tributary valleys on the south side, ie in Yorkshire. So whilst there is every likelyhood of the majority connection being Durham there is also a good probability of a Yorkshire connection. It is not as simple as to whether the town of Middleton itself was in Durham, that is not the question.

Well when you find that the clever ones come to your rescue ~ "fait acompli" or whatever it should be

Fistly, Middleton isn't/ was never in Yorkshire, but the mining was carried on in Nth Yorkshire in moor land area. Middleton being the nearest village, the Tees being the boundary

Scowie, I have sung the Manchester Cornstalk a number of times this year already ~ from Arthur Howard's singing, who lived on the hills above Penistone as a sheep farmer ~ I wonder if you or you mate Nick Caffery have collected this from anyone your side of the Pennines?

I bet the Commercial Traveller was from Yorkshire though!

Ray ~ Merry Christmas to all!

Sorry Ray, but your website says that MacColl collected the song in Middleton-in-Teesdale,YORKSHIRE, which is clearly misleading.

I'm sure you want to present accurate information.
