Default States/Counties of England

There are 39 counties in England, and 86 in Great Britain: http://www.abcounties.co.uk/counties/list.htm

Middlesex, a county just outside of London isn't listed. It should be as the town of Twickenham is NOT in London, it is in Middlesex, but there is no option to pair these two together.

Any chance things can be put right?

Thanks! :)

Casper,

That is a list of the counties before government reorganisation some years ago. The site you provided the link for is campaigning for the re-establishment of those former counties, but to the best of my knowledge they haven't all been re-instated. For example, the site shows Bristol as being in Gloucestershire. At present Bristol is in Avon which 'stole' parts of Gloucestershire and Somerset when it was created.

Thanks Adam and Keith - that makes it most confusing but at the same time very interesting!

I guess I need to study the links to find my true identity!!

:-)

Thanks, Cass

Middlesex is now incorporated into Surrey.
