Oldham Brewis

A form of Brewis of lost composition, but known from local tradition and a number of recorded sayings.

Peter Richard Wilkinson's 1998 A thesaurus of traditional English metaphors records both 'Warm and wet like Oldham Brewis' and 'Scarce as drops of fat on an Oldham Brewis' and Northall's English Folk Rhymes of 1892 has:

In Oldham brewis wet and warm,
and Rochdale puddings there's no harm.
