/ BMC doesn't know West From North
Not a single reply regarding the BMC's poor geography.
I wonder if they can Navigate their way to Almscliff?
Earl crag is often confused to be in West Yorkshire but it's North.
Still basic map reading.
You should thank them for not listing them under Lancashire.
Or The Peaks!
It all West of East Yorkshire -can't see your problem
Now you have done it, how long before before Al spots that? On a less serious point than the correct use of the plural you know full well quite a few 'peak' crags are in yorkshire (much more so than thise in the lancashire border skirmishes).
Yep there are Peaks crags in Yorkshire, however they are better left in Peaks guides. God put them on the periphery of his own county for a reason.
So I wonder if the BMC are going to put The Cliff back into North Yorkshire, oh wait a minute aren't the BMC a Lancashire set up? (Manchester being a former city of Lancashire, pre '72).It's all a bloody conspiracy!
I heard all grit was going in the Greater Staffordshire guide in the next series.
If the BMC have owt to do with it that will probably be the case, they probably think Staffordshire is near Aberystwyth.
It's only Yorkshire, get over it! :-)
<Tongue firmly in cheek>
I'm trying to work out whether saying "Peaks" in a geography pedantry thread is:
(a) funny because it's deliberately ironic, or ...
(b) funny because somebody who is pedantic about what is in "North" or "West" Yorkshire doesn't even know or care what a major climbing area that is partly in south Yorkshire (i.e. also in the West Riding) is called
I thought it was purely to wind Al Evans up :-)
You can't blame them when a massive chunk of North Yorkshire is further west then West Yorkshire ;-)
