Fish and chips became a stock meal among the working classes in England as a consequence of the rapid development of trawl fishing in the North Sea, and the development of railways which connected the ports to major industrial cities during the second half of the 19th century, which meant that fresh fish could be rapidly transported to the heavily populated areas.[2] Deep-fried fish was first introduced into Britain during the 16th century by Jewish refugees from Portugal and Spain,[3][4] and is derived from pescado frito. In 1860, the first fish and chip shop was opened in London by Joseph Malin

Had Pea & Ham soup from Greenhalgh's yesterday and they had added too much water to it!

I fancy some fish and chips, but I am waiting to be paid - will have to wait for next week when I will enjoy them all the more for having waited for them!

No! Sloppy peas are much better than Mushy peas! And a Wiganer should know that, them being lovers of t'pey-wet!

Mushy peas are pretty solid, but mushy, and sit on top of your chips. Usually dyed bright green. I don't like them! Sloppy peas are almost soup. Them's best! Very Happy

Don't see 'surprise' peas anymore. You probably will, if you live long enough.

Dunno, but I would love to have a chippy....Somewhere near an industrial park for profit, but priority would be good fare. And all left oer chips would be given away at closing time.
