I visited York back in the day when I was much younger. Ok, that would be two and a half years ago.

I went on a tour of a mine at the National Coal Mining Museum in Yorkshire and our tour guide was an old retired miner. I couldn't understand a word he said. I honestly don't think he was speaking English. ;-)

He wasn't. He was speaking a beautiful variant of English - see below:
