Of course, originally, all of England  was ours. Tragedy about having to give up Yorkshire, but the rest was no great loss.

Pen-y-gent, Elmet, Ledsham, Ledston and even Leeds are said to be derived from Celtic words.  Happy Yorkshire day!

 Methodists may not drink but they weren't above an outing to a pub and a good feed.

 

Methodism is the predominant religion in Wales.

For most of my life, the beer in most Welsh pubs was really grim.

 

Maybe the Methodists had their reasons and were ahead of the game.

Glasgow is derived from a Welsh name too.
