After the thread yesterday I’ve been looking at holiday cottages in Cornwall, as I’m in need of a proper Cornish pastie and a cream tea.

The Cornish Pastie was pre-dated by the Bedfordshire Clanger. This is usually savory and known as a alf 'n' alf when both savoury and sweet (usually apple or jam) at different ends. The NT used to sell them but now do sausage rolls - I now belong to English Heritage! 😎

The NT used to sell them in Bedfordshire. Some say they actually originated as the Hertfordshire Clanger! For the twin it is usually pork and apple.

There is a small Hertfordshire village that claims it made the first one but I am dubious. In areas of East Hertfordshire (e.g. Collier's End) there was open cast mining and lime Cornish tin mines it makes sense in eat the clanger/pasty and chuck the edge held in dirty hands.

That makes sense.

When I was in the Mob we used to reckon anyone from Cornwall was a Spaniard !!! Our MQ used to have a direct view of the Tamar and Albert Bridges.. If we hadn't of moved to Dorset we would of probably ended up in Saltash.

There is a Cornish Independence Party, but it hasn’t had much success. Most Cornish people hadn’t noticed that they WERE ruled from Westminster!
