Fish and Chips

The Independent, have a look here, has news that Fish and Chips are 150 years old today. Some interesting facts and figures. 150 of them!

 "George Orwell in The Road to Wigan Pier (1937) said fish and chips "averted revolution".
"30% of Britons crave fish and chips while they're abroad."

100% of the Kiwis that I know here in Bhutan miss fish and chips. They do have a nice variation here though. Deep fried chilli on a stick.

I am not so sure about No. 68 on their list though...
"The most southerly fish and chip shop in the world is Chumly Warner's of south-east Queensland, Australia."

Surely the Bewdley St shop just around the corner from our house in Christchurch is a bit further south than that.

Please submit your suggestion for the most southerly F 'n' C's. Stewart Island?

Please send me some fish. I have the potatoes.

I checked out Chumley Warner's, it was a fair hike from here. They claim to be the "most Southerly British Fish & Chip shop in the World selling North Atlantic Cod, Haddock and Plaice." That is ok then.
I lay claim to being the most Northerly person named Mark, in Bhutan, from Spreydon, Christchurch, not selling Hoki. Or are there some other contenders out there?
Late Breaking News
Mary reports that the National Federation of Fish Friers was established in 1913, in Leeds (a short distance from her).
