You think life in Clitheroe was odd? My kneck of the woods, Hapton, is a lot closer to the Yorkshire border - almost sheep country.

**** (without the sparrow) was the term I remember too.

and there was "cocker" too...

Hapton!

Used to know a bloke from there, but farm on the hill, he was called "Ernie", used to keep pigs and sell far and bones.

Can't remember his surname - but they were loaded and smelled of pigs most the time.

Slightly off topic as this refers to what people call other people. In North Somerset, every local name is prefixed with Arr. e.g. Arr Joss, Arr Clive. Haven't come across a Saul in North Somerset . . .

Never notice anything here in Cheltenham - all too flipping posh (or think they are) to use pet names.
