I was having an online-debate with several people - all of whom believed that Yorkshire was in the Midlands!

Please tell me that I'm not crazy and that Yorkshire is actually classed as the North of England!

I feel dirty now...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yorkshire

Quote:

Yorkshire ( /ˈjɔːkʃə/) is a historic county of northern England and the largest in the United Kingdom.


Following the link from 'Northern England' suggests that anything north of the river Trent is considered north and it gives Hull as an example.

I always knew it was "north" but I thought there was a east and west to do about it. Like even though it is in northern England its proper orientation was east and west Yorkshire.

Maybe I should look at a map or sumin. . . .

I'm from Lincoln originally ( so Midlands here as well ) and it'd feel funny being thought of the same as someone from Yorkshire.

No aalpha, the civil war comes if you suggest that Yorkshire is the same as (or even more shockingly, worse than) Lancashire.
