I clearly know less about tripe than yourself. However, I do know that North West England has a long tradition of using offal and a claim to the invention of haggis as we know it today dating from the late Middle Ages. I also know that the Lowlands' minority of English speakers saw themselves as ethnically English before they nicked the name Scots from the Gaels and wouldnt have minded what part of the Anglosphere their offal came from.

Interesting that you have no idea what tripe is yet you spew it on every post you make on this forum .
You would do well to concentrate on your school lessons and stay clear of the affairs of the world .

If nobody minds then evidence of its first published description should be of interest. It is first named in the sources in an English document from Lancashire. Offal remained a staple into the twentieth century locally.
