Agreed, as a Brit, I've only ever heard it as 'Black Pudding'. Probably both Black and Blood should be accepted but if it's a UK quiz the answer should definitely be shown as 'Black Pudding'.

Manchester was emphatically NOT the birthplace of the industrial revolution. It became one of its key centres but places like Ironbridge, Cyfarthfa and Cromford were industrialised decades before Manchester.

I was going to post something similar. I doubt any one place could be considered the birthplace of the industrial revolution.

Agreed - I live in Manchester and it certainly was the "powerhouse" of the revolution - but it certainly began elsewhere. Ironbridge is usually accepted as its birthplace - because of coal mines and iron smelters lining the gorge and where the world's first ever bridge made from iron was fabricated and erected.

It was certainly used a lot around the time it was being built and was first in operation, but to be honest, I can't remember the last time I heard or read the word (other than on Jetpunk) - it think it's fallen out of usage somewhat.

As far as I remember, it was a tem used in the newspapers around the time the tunnel was built. I don't believe it ever made it into the vernacular.

There was even a postage stamp referring to Chunnel at the time. Agree not used today. And the Manchester clue could be 'City once nicknamed Cottonopolis'

Actually, it's spelled "Catherine" and it's been said that she prefers to be called that over "Kate".

I live on The South Coast and I've near heard of this 'Chunnel' portmanteau. As far as I was concerned, it was just simply The Channel Tunnel.
