FOR THE FACTS ABOUT OUR COUNTIES

The United Kingdom has 92 counties. Always has had. Always will have.

Our counties and their boundaries have not changed for 1,000 years or more.

This unique map explains why our traditional counties are totally unconnected with local government boundaries, past or present.

Cumbria is not a county: it’s an administrative area

West Yorkshire is not a county: it’s an administrative area. So is South Yorkshire and North Yorkshire.

Middlesbrough is still and always will be in Yorkshire. So is Redcar; so is Sedbergh.

Peterborough (the bit above the River Nene - i.e. most) is still and always will be in Northamptonshire.

Didcot is still and always will be in Berkshire. So is Abingdon. But Slough isn’t: Slough’s in Buckinghamshire.

The border between Lancashire and Yorkshire runs right down the middle of Todmorden high street.

As does the border between Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire in Royston.

Middlesex was never abolished: it simply ceased being a local government area.

People of Barnoldswick are still living in Yorkshire, not Lancashire.

The administrative counties of Westmorland, Cumberland, Huntingdonshire, Radnorshire, Cardiganshire, Peebles-shire and Banffshire (to name but a few) might well have disappeared in 1974 but the real geographic counties bearing the same names most certainly did not.

Most people are utterly confused when it comes to our counties.

The media and map makers are no less confused.

This map and its information sheet sets the record straight!
