At the weekend I was back in my home village of Gowdall, Yorkshire. I was reminded of this this local phrase that I used to hear the old timers use when I was a kid ‘come fra together‘. It is used to describe something is no longer working or broken, etc. Literally ‘ come from together’ or a phrase we might use in a more limited sense today ‘come apart’.
Come fra together is Brilliantly simple and descriptive, I intend to start slipping it into conversations where I can so as to help preserve it into the future:^)
