Our 'Lump' on the Cross was Wordsworth Ave, Remington Road Morral Road, Monteney Road & Monteney Crescent.

It encompassed St Peter's School, Monteney Infants and Juniors and Colley Park (formerly the corn field)

I remember walking from our house near St Paul's church to Keppels Column and back on a few occasions, which was a fair old slog

It was a common saying when I was little although it was a rem my grandad used rather than my parents. I'd be interested to know if there is any older meaning behind the term 'lump' too.

Neck crops up quite a lot really, if you were kissing you were "neckin", and if you asked for something you shouldn't ( being cheeky) you had a lot of neck...

I used to work for a vet who wasn't local. He often called me in to act as interpreter.

One day he shouted me because he'd asked a man where he kept his dog and didn't understand the response;

 

"eelivsin'tcoylhoyl"
