Ey Up Mi Ducks,
This review is from: Ey Up Mi Duck!: Dialect of Derbyshire and the East Midlands (Local Dialect) (Paperback)
The Erewash and Amber Valleys have lost a lot of their distinctive features over the years, most recently with the closure of Stanton Ironworks, so it`s good to see something of local culture preserved.
One thing I would say though, it may be worth seeking out the three original paperback volumes of Ey Up Mi Duck, which were privately published by the authors, or the later reprints from a firm called Hargood, as these contain a bit on Derbyshire customs, folklore and history which is worth a look.These are also available on Amazon.
Having said that, the Notts/Derbyshire border has much to offer (the industrial heritage, the canals, the countryside) which the outside world is too often unaware of, so I welcome anything which raises it`s profile.
