    The Council are bringing in the same rules as they do for Cardiff refuse centres.
    You will now need to produce evidence you live in Cardiff before you can enter Caroline Street and get a 10% discount on your chips, anyone asking for Chippy Lane will be charged extra

    I'm local too, well have been since 1969 anyway, and the only person I've ever heard call it chippy lane was some woman from Cwmbran.
    I always thought it was a student thing

    Tony, I think you need to re-read the thread title and adjust your attitude, sunshine.

    Re: Chippy Lane - it's official

    I'm local, I've never been a student and it's Caroline Street

    Re: Chippy Lane - it's official

    I prefer Caroline Street, but I don't mind Chippy lane as an alternative (although it's much less chippyish or lane like than in its heyday).
    The guy I sit next to in work though calls it "chip shop alley" which is completely unacceptable behaviour.

    Re: Chippy Lane - it's official

    this is a list of acceptable names that can be used for describing Caroline Street



    1. Caroline Street

    For the elderly over 50's it was always Caroline Street , chippy lane is a relativity new name last 20 years or so I would say , it might be where you came from in Cardiff

    I grew up 5 mins walk from there by the Avana Bakery in Grangetown and I've always called it chippy lane. So does everyone I know, as well as calling it Caroline Street. It's when people come out with 'chip alley ' that does my head in..

    Chippy Lane is an English invention to make us sound thick(er than normal).

    I also believe that the same people who invented 'Chippy Lane' are also behind things like 'I loves the Diff' and daffodil hats. An attack on the working classes in my opinion.

    Don't get me started on THAT abomination!

    Re: Chippy Lane - it's official

    Although I despise anything other than Caroline Street, I did hear a story that Chippy Lane derived from the old nickname Cheapy Lane. This comes from historical references to people seeking the cheapest food in the area.

    I'm guessing you were told this by some student. Or some fat old slapper wearing a two size too small rugby shirt and a sparkly pink cowboy hat?
