I have been advised that a recent UK prog ~Heir Hunters, had a clip of the above song!

Delph was in Yorkshire I believe, near Saddleworth and Greenfield (now in Greater Manchester being near Oldham!) or some other made up Lankky area!!

Does anyone have a recording lyrics/provenance of this song please?

haven't heard this before

Ray

I've found that Ammon Wrigley wrote a poem called THE DELPH SHOW. Its first line is "Fro' th' Isle o' th' Skye to th' Laddy Rocks," and it appears on pages 232-233 of a book called "Songs of a Moorland Parish with Prose Sketches: A Collection of Verse and Prose, Chiefly Relating to the Parish of Saddleworth" (1912, reprinted 1980).

This information is from a web site called Lancashire Lantern: Lancashire Poetry Index.

More information from the Dunkerley-Tuson Family Website:
    Ammon Wrigley (1861 - 1946) was a remarkable man. He came from Saddleworth, which is technically in Yorkshire, but his language was that of Lancashire. He himself said 'its people speak, and have ever spoken, the Lancashire dialect' and 'Saddleworth is a Yorkshire parish, with a Lancashire population' (Old Lancashire Words and Folk Sayings, 1940).

Yes it is this geographical fact that caused the revival of the War of The Roses at Saddleworth folk festival!

As I have said before I had a great aunt who married the village bobby in Denshaw and they have family still local I believe!

hope to see you Capt sometime maybe at the Cross Keys, Uppermill
