From: Lanfranc
Date: 15 Dec 00 - 12:20 PM

I was born in Pudsey (Where t'ducks fly backways on and they rake t'moon out o' t'pond!), but my birth certificate shows not only my mother's and father's name (thus scotching THAT rumour) but the stamp of the "Registration District of Wharfedale". So, not only a Yorkie, but a Dalesman.

The Lady Elizabeth was born in Halifax (District of Calderdale), but we met in London, and we have lived the 30 years of our married life in Essex or thereabouts.

We insisted on writing to our relations in the West Riding of Yorkshire long after bureaucrats decreed that it should be conflated to West Yorkshire. As both our children were girls, we didn't bother going back for the births, as neither was likely to play cricket.

You can take the Yorkie out of the county, but not the county out of the Yorkie.

Mad - maybe, but happy mad.

Hang on! Some time back we trawled through the Three Wise Men of Gotham (Notts) where one of my great-grannys came from. Now, with that heritage, (which includes a moonraking story among many others), another granny reputedly born in Halifax (no proof, but she definitely WAS born) of Irish stock, and with me, Derbyshire born, living in Yorkshire for 13 years - will I be mad enough? Does the fact that I can usually understand a Yorkshire dialect help?

Lancashire moonrakers are charlatans and frauds. Real Moonrakers come from Wiltshire, any person of Wiltshire origin is known as a Moonraker, the county tie of Wiltshire, which I wear, features a Moonraker on it. Obviously Lancashire has so little history and legend of its own it has to appropriate stories from more interesting counties.

Doncaster in Yorkshire? hardly, When I was up in Helmsley a few years back and said I had been to Yorkshire before, near Doncaster I was told "dont think that Doncaster is anything to do with Yorkshire"

Audrey has returned from Cleethorpes sporting a tan and a new pair of gills -(I don't know no sooner are they spawn and the next moment .... (deep sigh). Anyway I can confirm that Doncaster is no longer in Yorkshire as it is now indeed a suburb of Norwich. I can confirm this after standing for many years on the platform of Doncaster station thinking that I was in the back of beyond and was never going to make it to Hull!

Ruthie once recruited me to be called Richard. It's perfectly true. Admittedly it was about a year ago. People probably don't do it any more. It was clearly a fad.

I can vouch for the fact that Ruthie is completely barking, having had her to stay in my house for a week! However, even though I have lived in Dorset for nearly 16 years, I too am a Yorkie, and therefore mad by definition!

There are only two sorts of folk - Yorkies, and those who wish they were. It's our modesty, not our eccentricity, that others find so appealing...

It wasn't since I married this southerner that I realised what serious language difficulties there are! For instance what in East Yorkshire terms a ginnel? Being mafted? Got a spell? Fell over the sink? Or in West Yorkshire terms snap? caussing? bab? In Birmingham the latter is a term of endearment, very confusing for toddlers new to the area!

If you slip across to Licolnshire you'll find tenfoots (no not tenfeet) suddenly become eightfoots in Grimsby, but strangely they seem the same size.

Somebody needs to measure maybe.

Can't check for myself, round here they're called entries and wouldn't count.

Seems there are dielect difficulties within Yorkshire as well.
Who here is nesh? Are they thralled?
Happen.
dare we mention why temporary traffic lights all over UK no longer bear the sign "Wait while red light shows"?
perfectly understandable in most parts but in Yorkshire "while" means "UNTIL"! It took a few accidents and court cases to remind London that the rest of the UK speaks differently (to them & to each other).
Happen so!!!

Nice story, but I'd be interested to know when and whereabouts in Yorkshire the accidents were. Sources in the Department of Transport tell me that signs saying "When red light shows wait here" have been used for more than a quarter of a century. But of course Yorkshire people have long memories.

So do people from the Black Country.
The story I heard was on the BBC on Radio 2 and may have been more than 25 years ago which itself was referring to history (unspecified). I remember the road signs, and remeber them changing the words, and I'm only 29 (Oh OK turned 35) **BG**.
You can just imagine a teen boy racer chancing his arm, and pointing to the verbiage in his defence when Mr Plod got out notebook & licked his pencil. I remember it as Manchester but that may have been in the Barnsley suburb (**BBG**), you know how metrocentric DJ's navigate.
BTW is Herga an FC thing?

Mr Red - the Herga Folk Club is where I should have been last night instead of posting here, but I was practising for a gig tonight with Les Sullivan at Uxbridge. Herga, being located in the London Borough of Harrow,is somewhat short of members from Yorkshire at the moment (it's a bit of a trek down the motorway, although one former member did actually drive down from Ilkley for a particular guest and drive straight back after). We do occasionally still see Tim Brooks (writer of So Far from Home and the Devil and York Minster) and our Christmas parties are not complete without his rendition of why each Christmas tree has a fairy on top and why Santa's beard is quite white.

Kitty, So Herga FC is Mondays but you didn't mention the Pub. The Devil & York Minster - don't hear it much now but it was regularly heard in the Somers FC years ago, when Dave Webber was a regular, (even on t'committee for a spell). Did the member from Ilkley Moor come "bar t'tat?"

Mr Red - I was trying to stay on thread but Herga meets at the Royal Oak, Peel Road, Wealdstone. Thanks to road improvements it's now quite difficult to find, even for people who live in London, like Peta Webb, never mind mad folk from Yorkshire and other parts. We have a website, and a how to get there map is at

should you ever happen this way on a Monday (not Bank Holidays.
