Quite! Never heard of it referred to as blood pudding, except in Germany.

Level 71
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'.

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.

Level 58

I was going to post something similar. I doubt any one place could be considered the birthplace of the industrial revolution.
+1
Level 58
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.

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.

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

100% it should be only Catherine. And it since it doesn't start with a K, it needs to be re~/moved.

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.

There were more than 8 King Edwards. The regnal numbers only go back as far as the Norman conquest. Edward the Confessor was the one they were all named after, and he reigned 1042-1066, and was certainly King of all England! Some would count Alf the Great's son Edward the Elder (899-924) and Edward the Martyr (975-978). So we could be talking 11. Certainly no less than 9.

Welp, I don't know if it's just my ignorance of sports trivia, but it seemed that most answers here were obvious/common knowledge except for the rival team question. That seems a particularly obscure detail to know, by comparison.

I understand why you would usually accept Saxon without the s in the end, but it kind of defeats the purpose of this quiz, doesn't it? Saxons needs its second s to keep the chain going...
