Welcome to this superbly friendly and informative forum from another Bolton member - well Westhoughton actually :wink::wink:

No thats cow yed city
not Bolton

I bet no one outside of this area understands what you mean by “cow yed city”. For those who are interested simply look up “Keaw Yed” city on Google.

see they can’t even spell cow or head

Bloody northerners :rofl:

Your Northern entry visa will abruptly end @PingSpike using such terms :wink::wink:


I still remember not long after I started working in Wigan and a few people in the office were talking about babbys yed and chips’n peawet.

Couldn’t help but wonder why these northern folk were going on about keeping babies in garden sheds and getting their peas wet :thinking:

I was also equally amazed by the fact that these same northern folk were putting gravy on everything they ate too :open_mouth:

But nearly twenty years later it all seems quite normal now :smiley:

But have you tried ‘lobby’ yet?

food of kings

Steak and kidney pudding (babbies yed - because its meant to look like a babies head) with chips and the juice of the top of the mushy peas (pea wet - the free/skint mans alternate to mushy peas)!!!

My sister married a wiganer… he’s been skitted ever since.
