Brits don't call it blood pudding... It's black pudding!

Quite! Never heard of it referred to as blood pudding, except in Germany.
+5
Level 69
Dec 6, 2017
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'.

Had to work out sandwich lol, was genuinely spending time thinking of male names that start in s and end in h, then I genuinely read the question!

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.
+1
Level 59
Dec 6, 2017
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.

Given that you live in Manchester, The Cottonopolis bar on Newton Street may have been a clue, especially if you already had M & R, even before the clue was changed,

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.

I've stayed here all my life and have never once heard it referred to as that!

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'

Kate is now Katharine, so that should be accepted as an answer. In fact, it should be the answer!

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.

I don't do as well on these quizzes as most, but I've heard "Chunnel" many times here on the free side of the Atlantic.

I assumed that Pippa must be the long lost sister of Peppa Pig. I had no other guess besides that, especially after I had filled in the two around it.
