Very funny article and comments.

 

 

I want to try the Hull Pattie experience. Forty years in Yorkshire and I never knew it existed.

 

 

 

:yes:

It does tend to get the Ridings mixed up with the modern counties e.g. Harrogate is down as one of those "ace" places in the North Riding but it was never part of the North Riding. It might be in North Yorkshire but it was West Riding.

 

It also underplayed West Yorkshire. It's not all urban areas but any stretch of the imagination and although the Dales and North York Moors are better known, there are some equally attractive places in West Yorkshire.

Not according to some of the comments; it is potato and sage in batter.

Patties aren't unique to Hull, just about every chip shop in the North East and Cumbria sells them.

There are generally 4 varieties :-

Pattie - potato, sage & onion

Meat Pattie - potato, onion & either corned beef or mince

Cheese Pattie - potato, cheese & onion

Fish Pattie - potato & cod

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

I worked in Scarborough for several years and was ridiculed for ordering a 'cake' from the chippy. What I call a cake is what Derwent describes as a Pattie.
There's also the issue of what you call scraps, with some weirder parts calling them 'bits'. Not to mention 'do you want them open?' Which in proper English means 'to eat now'

And what about Lankies with the frankly mental 'pudding and chips' :D

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

It is indeed and if you get a good one they're bloomin' gorgeous.

Doncaster was in the West Riding but in South Yorkshire.

They don't count if they haven't been lovingly hand crafted by a time served Hessle Road Pattie Slapper.

Don't get me started on this. It really niggles me that some of the most beautiful parts of the East Riding, such as Thixendale, are now in the North Yorkshire administrative area.

 

If it's in the area bounded by the Derwent it's in the East Riding, simple.

Thixendale is in the Wolds, not the Moors, and the two areas have a definitely distinct 'feel' to them.

Spot on.

 

Do you know it? I love the place (apart from cycling up the long 1 in 6 hills to get home again).

Only been there a couple of times, years ago, when we put on a concert in the village. It feels strangely cut off from the outside world.

There are some areas there where I wish the government would get a move on in copying Scotland's wild camping laws.  A weekend away in a tent somewhere there or a week or two with just a backpack wandering the area would be a very welcome break from civilisation.

They didn't have terrestrial TV until the 1990s because of the way the village lies so deep in the dale.

The word pattie seems somewhat redundant in that sentence.

Or one at a safe distance  ;)

I have to say that it is news to me that North Yorkshire contains any of the old East Riding. I thought the East Riding in its entirety went over the old Humberside county.

Open or wrapped? It's simple.

 

Bits and scraps seemed to be interchangeable in Harrogate in the 80s. Nobody would pick you up for using the "wrong word".
