Do We Get Everywhere?

Recommended Posts

There seem to be pockets of HPCers, so for the Scots for example they all appear to live in Edinburgh.

Anyway to see if we have covered the country, here is the full listing of counties from Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_counties_of_the_United_Kingdom. In replying copy the list, claim your county, and delete the county you're claiming so it's clear what's left. This is where you're living now, not where you're from or where your gran lives. I was guessing Rutland might end up unclaimed for England but having seen that Lincolnshire has subdivisions that's in with a shout, I don't know about the other countries.

As the topic starter I'm not deleting it so we have a full list and will leave that honour to one of the other people who live in the earthly paradise that is Cornwall (excepting of course Redruth, Camborne, Bodmin, Liskeard, St Columb Major, Roche etc. etc.). I note that it's wrapping in post preview but that's probably for the best or the posts will be extraordinarily long.

If you in the Isle of Ely you can delete both by the way.

I have deleted Somerset.

But I work there! Is there no point in me setting off tomorrow at 4.30 am?

Can you imagine the scrolling needed, if everyone quotes the Op?!?

The Welsh counties you have listed are the old pre local authority reorganisation of 1 April 1996, they don't exist anymore.

The current ones are:

I'm claiming Caerphilly County Borough. I have no idea who will claim Swansea ;)

I thought that also.

Can't the web site work out where we are from the IP address? Google maps can.

Since Cheshire East and Cheshire West are one and the same here I'm claiming both of them.

Funny that you mention Rutland as that's where I would consider myself from. Very much living in Cheshire at the moment though.

I should probably update the location under my avatar too!

West Glamorgan has not existed for more years than I can remember.

I had to renew my passport last week - I am planning on fleeing - and there were not enough spaces on the form for 'City & County of Swansea'.

Edit:

I had application form angst as a result.
