Judging from the accent that sounds like Granny is from my part of the world. Merry Christmas Dave.

And mine if you mean the UK. But where in the UK I wonder? There’s a tang of Northern Ireland but mainly north of England. It’s a weird one.

Happy Christmas to both you and Dave (I’m not going in for any of this Happy Holiday nonsense!).

Yes I am a bit confused about the region. Some North and bizarrely sounds a bit old school Westcountry! Season’s Greetings to you too.:santa:

As for the their dialect, they are from Dartmoor (in the UK) and some of the last speakers with the Devon dialect. I don’t know when it was filmed but they may be gone now.

Merry Christmas and happy Boxing day.

Ah Dave I was right!. I live near Dartmoor and there are still a few old timers who live around here who talk like this. They still talk about ‘Father’ in the same traditional way in reverent tones.

Really? Now you’re teaching me something. Certainly not much like the Devon accents I am used to hearing these days. Now Cornwall can be a bit odd admittedly and that’s not much further afield.

Of course, Dartmoor has other connotations. They weren’t banged up at Her Majesty’s pleasure, I presume?

I only know what I read. There are a few other videos of them telling stories on YouTude.
