    The UK has a very obvious north and south divide. North of the divide is generally poorer, whereas the south is richer.

    Where do you think this divide is in the UK?

    Personally, I think it is just South of Birmingham because places like Stratford, Worcester and Rugby aren't typical Northern towns.

    But I don't think the divide is a straight line because I wouldn't say Lincolnshire is a Northern county at all, even though it is further north than Birmingham.

    where the accent and dialect gets to the point that you can't understand what someone's saying, that's when you know it's the North

    The north of the UK is Scotland.

    The north of England roughly starts from north of Stoke & Sheffield I would say.

    places like Stratford, Worcester and Rugby aren't typical Northern towns.
    They aren't northern towns at all, they are in the Midlands :rolleyes:
