My sister got a Lancashire Dialect book for Xmas, quite a good read too and many phrases I’ve not heard of and really shows the differences between Bolton, Wigan, Preston etc despite the relative proximities.

Worth a search online for if, couple of quid tops
Sounds good A&L. Can you give us the title & author so we can search for it please?

Thanks, owd lad.

I had a 90-odd year old uncle and auntie in Hindley. My sons were in their teens when we went to see them. There was a crash from the kitchen, uncle went through and we just heard him say "Er's fawed overr!"

After my auntie died, he always praised my sister for taking him shopping. "Er teks mi ter t'Sparrr int carrr."

He'd buy her a pie for taking him, but in school holidays she'd take her son with her and it was downgraded to 2 mini sausage rolls!

Rugby, Family and Strava... that’s about it for me tbh

I’ve seen Ellery Hanley, Martin Offiah and been dragged to Wigan games since memory... absolutely lucky!

As some of you will know I'm a 'Marra frae Whiteheven'!
However, I lived in Warrington from 1981-1985 when I worked for BNFL at Risley.
I remember very well asking for a 'tea cake' and getting a barmcake!! Took a while to get used to the accent and vice versa I'm sure.
Still love to hear the Wigan and Lancashire accent. Much better than the Yorky!

A tea cake isn’t a barmcake, a barmcake is a barmcake. Not a roll or a muffin, a barmcake

As an exile since the age of 15, I've always missed the Lancashire dialect. Sadly, it seems that it's in decline if not dying out.

Wi winter eer, t'childer met be slurring. Tha could faw ooer, cos t'snows wurse thun slutch.

Words like Thrutch, Fratching, Yedwaerch, and simple greetings "Neaw then, 'eaw tha gooin on owd lad?" are completely foreign here in darkest Yorkshire.

Now I'm an owd mon misel, I get nostalgic for some proper talk.

By the way, my grandad was the original Barm Joe. He supplied barm (yeast) from a hand-cart in the days when everybody baked their own bread at home. His shop was on Chapel Green Road in Hindley (top of Argyle Street), taken over by my dad when his dad died in 1936.
Me mum lived in Argyle Street and went to that school.
They then moved to Platt Lane.
When I wer a lad me grandad lived in Platt Lane, same house, and me uncle lived next door and former Bolton player Syd Farrimond lived the other side.
Sid Abram was a big mate of my Uncle Tommy.

Neaw then, WW, tha're talkin my language 'ere:

I was born above my dad's shop at t'top of Argyle St (address is actually Chapel Green Road). It was known as "the penny dip" at one time, and belonged to my grandad since WW1.

I went to Argyle St primary school from 1955 to 1962.

My other grandad lived on Platt Lane - at number 95, which is about 4 houses from the bottom (Atherton Road end), where Bullough's bakers shop was.

In 1974, I briefly worked for Clarington Coach and Haulage Company (old BRS depot on Wigan Road). Owned by Norman Bibby, ex Wigan chairman. Syd Abram, then about 70, used to fuel up the lorries with diesel as we got back at the end of the day

My Grandad lived at 98 and my uncle at 96.
I think my cousin still lives at 96 but not seen him for years.
Used to have a kick about with my cousins at the back of them houses when I went round.
Syd came out on a couple of occasions when at his mum's and gave some encouragement.
Happy days!!

What years are you talking, WW?
I was born 1951, and moved to Yorkshire in 1966 (though I had 6 months or so back in Hindley in 1974).

I hated school, but many happy memories of Hindley and Hindley Green.
