England's best County

Take note of the article in today's BT Homepage. The homepage does contain interesting articles....

 

There was a recent post from Pottyperson, re fish and chips in Leeds.

Well, there's a good chippy in Whitby and also in Robin Hoods Bay, not to mention other places. Even Pickering has a good chippy. All seem to claim awards for being the best, so it's a matter of choice.

True, it's the Tour de France which brought attention to the Yorkshire to the West of Leeds. But the real attention was first drawn by the movie, "Calendar Girls".

There's a big difference between the Calendar Girls country (just an hour or so from here in Lancs ), the Yorkshire near Ingleton, and the North Yorkshire Moors - a favourite spot in my childhood days.

 

Still perhaps the article is right. Yorkshire is a good county - it's been unspoiled by tourism in the past.

It's a grand county, my mother hailing from there, I have spent many happy times in most parts including the coal field areas

I think  @AllanQuatermain is the resident Yorkshire expert so might be a little biased about this (and rightly so) Smiley Wink.

 

Cheers

Yes, I was hoping it might trigger some response. It's Yorkshire day, apparently. Smiley HappySmiley Happy

 

I still remember the Teesside steelworks, and the producer gas plant smells, the notorious "tomcat" smell (yes it's true!) from the chemical works....All industry raw material, historically, was sourced from the Cleveland (Yorkshire) mines, and the Durham coal.

Happy days!

I've heard of those cakes @stuartrogerson but what's a pikelet?

Re: England's best County

It's Yorkshire for an English crumpet. Not to be confused with a Scottish crumpet which is something entirely different

Nothing wrong with a bit of crumpet Smiley Wink (cue Benny Hill music)
