I grew up around Collingham, Boston Spa, and Wetherby (not the posh bits of any of them!). I always preferred Sam Smiths. The Taddy Porter, mmm...

Go on one of the Goth weekends they have there. Busting out of a bustier top, being laced into a corset, or heavy boots. long leather overcoats, white foundation and black eyeliner could be just the Yorkshire sights you're looking for!

It was pretty well all John Smiths round where I grew up, horrible stuff but there was little choice. They bought out the Barnsley brewery in about 1971 and immediately shut it down and replaced Barnsley Bitter (which was a decent pint) with John Smiths Bitter in all the pubs and Working Men's clubs etc. The brewery has been demolished recently (within the last 4 or 5 years) but I don't know what's being done with the land. On the bright side, Acorn Brewery is making Barnsley Bitter and it's reet smashing.....

My life's blood is Lancastrian, but I live and breathe Cornish now. Been here 35years, far longer than I w :roll: as ever in Lancashire ............ or even Wales. :lol:


I am a Yorkshireman by blood but only lived there for less than two years. Fiercely proud of my heritage though. Several generations of Terry's of York and railway employees before that.
Been down South since '81 but spent two years in Cornwall and can't wait to go back. I ache for the place.

The quote in the middle of the post at 1044 was the problem I think :?

Cleaned it up a bit.

If push comes to shove, what would you claim to be if you could only be one? Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cornish? I grew up in Lancashire but after 27 years here in Wales, and with kids who are Welsh, my allegiance has shifted. Home is here, not some place where I grew up and everyone I knew has moved away.

Please, get it right you're killing me! I was quoting some one else who said the L word. It's a county I have never associated myself with. For the love of (your chosen deity) change it please!

Looking back, it is your own post that includes your contribution below something you hoped to quote, but both are as if you said them, none of it in quotes. That's where the confusion comes from. But I put you out of your misery and tell the world you come from Yorkshire, or York to be more precise.

Ah ha! Now I have had a chance to recover from the shock of it I can see how that happened. Corrected now. What a clot. :oops:
