Test your county loyalties.

We don’t think there’s much debate when it comes to which county can claim to be the greatest of them all, but in celebration of Yorkshire Day we thought we would point out why we think you should be proud to be from Yorkshire rather than Lancashire.

Many people refer to Yorkshire as ‘God’s Own Country’, the county has been a source of divine inspiration for centuries, there are hundreds of iconic churches from various eras that are dotted around the county. You can test your knowledge on them in our churches quiz.

When it comes to national parks, it’s currently 2-0 when it comes to Yorkshire vs Lancashire, we have the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors on this side of the Pennines and it’s the same score for World Heritage Sites, with Fountains Abbey and Saltaire representing us.

In fairness to our Lancastrian friends, much of the Lake District was part of Lancashire before some certain boundary changes, and was designated a national park in 1951 when a large section of it was part of the red rose county, it was awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO this year, so to be generous, we’ll say it’s 2-1 to Yorkshire.

We do have a shared love of many things in Yorkshire and Lancashire, the Pennines that form a large sectionof our borders are well loved on both sides, the South Pennines area is very much underrated for those who are unfamiliar with the region. While the iconic Leeds-Liverpool Canal that plays an important part of the shared industrial history of both counties has many highlights along its 200km route.

So how did you fare in our test? Did you confirm your Yorkshire credentials? Or are you thinking of going into hiding in Lancashire?

Share and challenge your friends to see if they are as Yorkshire as you are.
