Get the Marra mug.
In the pit villages of the Durham Coalfield, marrowing was a system of bed-sharing agreed by two friends who were on opposite shifts. Your bed sharer was known as your marrow, or "marra", and the term then became synonymous with "mate".

Friend or mate. Used in greetings and to show respect to an equal, especially a fellow West Cumbrian.

Get the marra mug.
Cumbrian word for friend or 'mate'. Originates from the way marrows are grown in a field, lined up next to each other closely, as if they were friends.
