On Wikipedia It Says Wallace's Accent Is Yorkshire Is This Right


Josephine Posted: Oct 29th 2007

If anyone has seen or heard Peter Sallis on Last of the Summer Wine on BBC1, he plays a Yorkshire man called Clegg. When he does the voice of he should be more Lancashire but his bash at a Lanky accent is not as strongly enunciated at time - not Mr Sallis' fault - hence the confusion as to which side of the Pennines accent really comes from. is definitely Lanky - Nick P is a Lancashire Lad and he based on his dad. It's the references to Wensleydale cheese that confuses people (Wensleydale is in Yorkshire). Hope this answer has helped...in a convoluted, roundabout way!
