I believe there is a Geordie Bible. Publisher / author not known to me.
Someone is bound to know!

BUT there is also a Cumbrian Bible / parables told in dialect, which I
can try to find out through the local radio station who has a woman who
form time to time delivers such tales on air. Given the proximity of
Lancashire to Cumbria - then Westmoreland, Cumberland etc - I wonder if
that is more likely to be nearer the accent you want?

Doesn't Lawrence begin Sons and Lovers using a Northern accent for the
characters' speech and then abandon it?  Would that be of any help?
