This chapter discusses the importance of English regionalism in the construction of national identity. The discussion focuses on the North West, which is a region frequently excluded from the maps of English journeys. It considers the role of this region in George Orwell's and Mass-Observation's social anthropology projects of the 1930s. The chapter also takes a look at the challenge posed to similar representations, which are shaped by modern Northern popular performers.
