I still have this feeling that they should be speaking a Celtic language in Cumbria though, considering it has such a rich Celtic history, closely linked to Wales. But then the same could be said for most of Britain.
Do you think it would ever catch on? There seem to be quite a few enthusiasts already.

Fair enough on the "accident of history" bit. I think this is just the attitude a lot of us 'Celts' have. "Give us back our land, give us back our language", etc. I still think it would be nice for Cumbria to speak a Celtic language though
The Old North is where Wales' oldest poetry comes from, right? They deserve to have something, some sort of recognition.
