Meaning 'big'. Is this just a Sunderland thing as opposed to a northeast thing?

I've just used wass in a sentence while conversing with someone from Chester Le Street and they haven't a clue what's going on.
Definitely a bona Fife expression and well used.

Maybe the people you were talking to were thickies!

I was once in a meeting with loads of Teessiders and I mentioned that someone was "twisting on" about something. None of them had a clue what I was on about.

Not many people do from Chester :lol:
There was a Harry Wass, possibly, from Pelton Fell, which is just up the road, he had a wooden leg iirc @The Red Telephone
Wass was used in Fencehouses back in the day so i'd be surprised if it hadn't reached Chester-le-street like.
Depends when back in the day was. They're still wearing Bay City Roller pants in Chester :D
