The Yorkshire Rose taking a Bow.The vagaries of the Yorkshire Dialect are many and various, but there exists a band of enthusiasts (Colloquially known as Tykes) who are determined to see it continue by the creation of original Yorkshire Dialect Verse.
Many of the authors here are members of the Wakefield & District U.3.A.

Some of the verses have been recorded (where possible by the author), and when you see the MP3 button next to the text of a recorded verse you may download or play the MP3 version.


If you haven't come across the leading Cashback site then you need to take a look.
The principle is that when you shop on-line, if you go to the retailer via the Cash
back site you earn a percentage of the sale.
You will be amazed at the stores which participate, and the percentages can vary from say 5% for
Marks & Spencer to 30% for Symantec Anti-virus.
Costs nothing to sign-up and you can have your Cash transferred to your
Bank, to a PayPal account or even sent by Cheque.
If you
follow this link to sign up then I also get a £1.00 referral fee when your earnings go over £5.00, and you get the opportunity to refer others.
Unfortunately this site only works with UK retail sites.

This site is here to encourage this creative talent from the White Rose County. If you have any original Yorkshire Dialect Verse you would like to contribute then please email me the text, and if you haven't published here before please also include a profile of yourself and if you have one attach a photo.

Where to start

My current favourite is Nowt’s Same Terday by Dennis Rhodes, and The Mechanic by the same author is worth a visit just for the last verse alone. Also take a look at Erroo'as by one of our latest contributors, Benny Wilkinson.
