I only found out a couple of years back that I was born in East Yorkshire, though it might have been classified as Humberside at the time. It was a nice surprise, as prior to that I'd always thought I was born on Teesside :D

Anyway, I love Yorkshire, though of course it's not as great as Tyneside and Northumbria. But then nowhere is.

I'm hoping to book a cottage in the Dales for a week next year. I did this in Derbyshire a few years ago and had a fantastic week and have been itching to do something similar.

A whole week? and bookable??

I thought you just hung around public lavatories for an hour or so hoping for the best.

We found a great cottage in a lovely place and the cottage even has a little gym in it...not expensive either.

I haven't the faintest idea what you're on about, which is probably for the best.

Some questions on Yorkshire..

Yorkshire folk have a reputation of being a bit blunt. Do you think it is warranted? And if so why do you think the Yorkshire personality is different to say folk from Lancashire?

If one was to go on a walking holiday of Yorkshire where would you recommend?

If you were to name one place as being the heart or embodiment of Yorkshire, where would it be and why?

If you want blunt, go to Yorkshire. If you want blunt with wit, style and humour, go to Glasgow.

Swaledale is notorious for all that deviant sex in the open.

:twisted:

I was born in Middlesbrough, which at the time I was born (1966), was in North Yorkshire. The county borders changed in 1973, and Middlesbrough became part of Cleveland. I have never once thought of myself as a Yorkshireman. I was born in Teesside. I'm a Teessider.

If you take all of Yorkshire (North, South, East, West) it is by far the biggest county in the UK. But what has it actually given us ... fuck all. Just compare it to it's great rival Lancashire, which historically included Manchester and Liverpool. You don't need me to tell you all the cultural icons Lancashire has given us ... And Yorkshire?? ... Kaiser Chiefs, Def Leppard, Geoff Boycott and four old twats "comically" rolling down hill in a fucking bathtub. Football teams ... Lancashire has Man United, Man City, Liverpool, Everton, Blackburn, Bolton and Wigan (and Blackpool last season) all in the Premiership. The best Yorkshire can offer, despite it supposed size and greatness is the former glories of Leeds United, and maybe Sheff Wed.

And as Fireplug already mentioned, they also think that they have some kind of monopoly on being Northern ... ey up, sithee and all that. Despite the fact that most of Yorkshire is quite clearly in the Midlands.

Lets face it, Yorkshire is shite, which is why all it's full of gobshites who constantly sing it's praises in the faint hope that nobody has noticed what a cultural vacuum it is.

So stick that in your fucking pipe and smoke it Fred Trueman. A'll sithee.

:P

Ditto Mancs and Scousers.

But as Coan and Fireplug will confirm, the proper north of England is Cumbria, Tyneside, and Northumbria.

I'm willing to consider Teessiders as probationary members, if they behave themselves ;)

I think you'll find it's three old twats, but otherwise I concur :lol:

It's like the boring bits of Wales to look at. No proper mountains.
