This was inspired by the thread on weird butties... Where I was brought up (Oldham), it was quite normal to have chips and gravy. I moved to St Neots in Cambridgeshire, where they looked at you most strangely if that's what you asked for. When I moved to Rugby, about half did chips 'n' gravy, half didn't. So my theory is that the North/South divide is nowt to do with wealth, whippets or flat caps but whether you live above or below the chips and gravy line.
