Local song, Norfolk (Sid Kipper's composition)

In Cheshire there's cheese and in Yorkshire there's pud,
But my wife's old dumplings are Norfolk and good.

Norfolk and good, Norfolk and good.
We are the boys who are Norfolk and good.

Aye, I wondered about that!
"I'm sitting at a railroad station, gotta ticket for my destinayshu-un" - Crewe song? My daughter was born in Crewe.....but in a hospital, not on a railway platform!

And WELCOME BACK TO SENOFOU! Been away too long!

Well I thought corny jokes belonged below the line, but move it and annoy people who want sense if you like.
Definitely
Here's to Cheshire (I live only a couple of miles from the apple trees mentioned in that song - don't think the strawberries are still there, a couple of local fruit farmers have retired recently).
How many of the Kipper's place names are real?

It was Widnes, not Crewe. They had a plaque for about 2 days before someone nicked it!

Wizard of Alderley Edge by Pete Coe is my favourite Cheshire song.

I'm not sure, but I seem to remember them talking or singing about places that seem as improbable as some that you do find on a map.

An, (a naturalised Cheshire singer) sings a song with a chorus "sing high, sing low, sing fare you well my dear".
So, as Dave has brought this thread back below the line I'll offer "Joseph Taylor", to bounce it upwards again.

There is a nice tune called Namptwich Fair (the old name for Nantwich) - which is where we lived while in Cheshire. Don't know if it has words.

Doug, I think you take the prize. How many people have heard of Hoole?
Tattie, don't know about words but there is a dance (published in one of the old dancing masters Walsh? Thompson? I have a card with the instructions but I've not put the date or publisher). Seems there are 2 tunes, but I've not heard the second one played. In Nantwich sessions they always play St Georges Day to follow Nantwich Fair.

This thread is yo-yoing between BS & music!

Half of Trafford used to be in the County Palatine of Lancashire.

Admittedly half was down south in Cheshire.

It wasn't Trafford that I was claiming was in Cheshire, Raggy - just Sale, which stops at the south bank of the River Mersey.

If any mod thinks the balance has swung enough to mean it belongs up there, please move it. But I thought if I started up there I'd have complaints on that score.
