Somerset Lingo!

As you know, ‘Dimpsey’ is a Somerset word for “the time in the evening just before dusk” and we absolutely adore it! Being from Somerset we knew we had to use a local word for our business, however we have found some more unusual dialect to show you thanks to the BBC website.

Some of our favourites we have found are: Acker meaning friend, Aggy meaning off to gather eggs (we kid you not!) and Nottled meaning really cold!

There you go, you learn something new everyday!
