pronunciation[edit]

the RP pron. was listed with the first vowel as in cow. That seems odd, and I couldn't confirm, so I took it out and left only the local pron. Pls restore if I was too hasty. kwami (talk) 04:36, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

I added that and it was probably caused by my lack of familiarity with the IPA. The problem with local pronunciations of Rawmarsh is that there are several depending on how local you are and how 'posh' you are trying to speak! I think there needs to be an RP pronunciation that stresses that the first syllable is pronounced closer to the word row than raw - true Rawmarsh residents can then mangle the second syllable as much as they want:) 89.241.144.173 (talk) 10:43, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

All Saints' church, Upper Haugh[edit]

Surely this doesn't exist any more? I live in Kent now, but I went to Upper Haugh Primary School in the late 40's, and the church was a prefabricated building next door. I went back in 1992 and the church had gone. I have just confirmed this on Google Earth. Can some local give an input on this? 78.146.235.10 (talk) 09:12, 10 October 2009 (UTC) (Same person as above but my IP has changed) I visited a couple of weeks ago and confirmed that All Saints Haugh does not exist any longer, so I have removed the reference. There was also a Methodist Church ("chapel") in Upper Haugh, which is also gone, I believe.89.242.96.251 (talk) 09:13, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
