Looks a lot like a Yorkshire flat ‘at.
This is amazing. Curtsy: Rueful Red in the comments to my Drexel Shaft video, “Here’s how they used to do it in Lancashire:”

It is indeed the Lancashire ‘Ard ‘At. They used to wear conventional hard hats until they worked out they’d nothing worth protecting.
I’d wondered if there were a certain rivalry between the adjacent ‘shires.
I love that accent.
Rivalry? God’s Own County in a rivalry with a Scouse-ridden strip of sheep-pasture, the local dish of which is tripe and onions (and they count themselves lucky to have even that)? That entertains itself by watching kick-ball and Coronation St? That, unlike Yorkshire never produced anyone who discovered a new continent? Nah. Don’t think “rivalry”s quite the right word.
Still, fair do’s, they’re better than Southerners…..
(Actually, Fred Dibnah’s a bit of a hero of mine.)
Forgive me if I’ve sent this before, but Yorkshire has its own airline:
Did they ever let Boycott captain the MCC?
Having seen the mess he’d made at Yorkshire they’d have had to be crackers to have done so. OK, we no longer had empire to lose, but The Queen’s still quite keen on friendly relations with the Commonwealth. So no Boycs as skipper.
He did however captain England against Pakistan and New Zealand in 1978 after Brearly had been injured. He lead England to its first defeat by NZ in 48 years, and then was famously run out on purpose by Botham in the next.
Botham never struck me as being the patient sort.
Not when he’s stood at a bar, and that’s for sure. Though he enjoys fishing.
