12 things that prove Yorkshire is better than Lancashire
In our hearts, we all know that Yorkshire is a better county than Lancashire, don't we?
But we thought it would be useful to get together just SOME of the reasons why we know that we live in the greatest county, not just in the north, but in the country:
9. We make better musicians
Sure Lancashire has Oasis, Stone Roses and a few others, but we think Yorkshire owns this one, just. Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, Def Leppard and Human League all score highly here.
10. The Vikings made their capital here
That's right. Another mention for York, or Jorvik as it was known when the Vikings settled here.
11. We make better beer
There are no arguments here. We see your Thwaites and we raise you Tetley's...and Samuel Smith's, and several others.
12. God's Own County
Lancashire didn't get that name did they? Looking at Yorkshire, it's clear to see why its beauty would lead to such a fitting title.
