My father in law’s grand mother used to say she had reached ‘Stoke’s Bridge’ when she was full. He has been searching for what this actually meant.
although he has found that there are several Stoke’s bridges in the uk there is no link to why she would use this phrase.
She lived in Hereford and he at first thought this must be a local phase although he can’t find any Stoke’s bridge in that area. now someone else says they are sure one of their relatives in the north of England (Manchester area) used to use this phrase.
Has anyone heard of this, and if so do you know what it means and the origin?
