English Counties Explained

This fantastic video by #MapMen, Mark Cooper-Jones and Jay Foreman, explains (in a humorous way) the origins of England’s counties and the current mess and county confusion that exists.

As ever, we reiterate that the chaos and confusion surrounding Britain’s counties would end with the implementation of our three simple objectives.

A Reminder of Our Objectives

🎯 Maps and roads to include historic counties as standard

🎯 End the use of ‘county’ in admin area names

🎯 ‘Ceremonial counties’ realigned to match traditional counties
