The experts who write for this website

 

WHAT IS A DABBER?

THEY use dabbers in painting, plate making, brass rubbing . . . and bingo. In fact, anything where you need to dab! It is the name of a particular type of boat. But here in Nantwich we tend to think of ourselves as Dabbers. Why? There are various theories. Click on this link to find out more.

 

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

 I AM often asked how I pronounce my surname, Brough. Is it as in brow, throw, cough, through or Bruges, people ask. None of the above. It is said as you would say Bruff - which is often how people spell it if I don't tell them otherwise.
