I suppose you'll be adopting a kestrel when not playing in Pete Postlethwaite's brass band and taking your whippet to t'vets and saying "ah'm a gonna loose 'im, mister 'erryitt?".

Whilst wearing a flat cap and looking at a signed photo Brian Glover.

FACT, tha knows.

They are like ettles cakes yes!

They are flatter and have a short crust pastry that's less crumbley than their Mancunian brothers.

Now where do I start with that?

You seem to have Lancashire and Yorkshire mixed up. I'll make it simpler for you. Lancashire (home of the Chorley cake) is a wonderful county full of nice people and places... Where as Yorkshire isn't.


FACT.

That should get a few puddin's writing in anger on here, although it's probably easier when you have 12 fingers!!

Good god I'd almost forgotten these shortcrust delights. Oh for a decent cuppa and a Chorley cake on a cold winters day, a coffee and croissant is just not the same, feels like I'm letting the side down.
