I thought it was great, but then I love W&G. SWMBO enjoyed it but still thinks 'A Close Shave' is the pinnacle. She love Shaun.

We Lancastrians got the 'Furry' reference. But the stepped rooflines on the hillside terraces are a Yorkshire thing.

It depends which bit of Colne you mean, the terraces close to the main road are typical, one was featured in the Python film 'The Meaning of Life'

This picture of Nelson shows what I mean.


Nick Park takes a lot of the settings from the area between Preston and Wigan where there aren't many hillside terraces.

Are you sure?  I was led to believe that the Pythons filmed that in the terraces of Headingley... :-\

Sorry, Bankfield Street Colne, visible from Vivary Way, a typical example of the continuous unstepped roofline.

Certainly Lancashire has always been connected to the rest of the world, in the same way that Yorkshire has been inward looking. You only have to look at the talented cricketers who have played for Lancashire teams, both County and League. We have always looked further afield for our footballers too. How many Yorkshire teams are there in the Top Two divisions again?

Yorkshire would say why bother looking out when perfection lies inward?

I'm sorry to hear that Lancashire can't produce it's own cricketers or footballers, and had to rely on the slave trade for its economic development.  Terribly sad.

In the Yorkshire half of my family it's big noses and domino playing!

I was thinking of men like Baron Constantine, of Maraval in Trinidad and Tobago and of Nelson in the County Palatine of Lancaster. Learie Constantine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
