Hi Louise,
My wifes from Withernsea east coast.She used to live in Hull in fact her daughter still does.
My next door neighbor is from around Nottingham area cracks me up she allways says are yeall righhht when she sees me.Im used to my wifes accent I dont tend to notice it so much although it is very stronge Yorkshire.A lot of people down here comment on it becuase we speak with such an educated accent even if we are thick.
