I have come to realise how utterly rubbish I am at geography. Not world geography, I’m a valuable pub quiz team member at capital cities & history but domestic, UK place name geography.
Such a high percentage of UK sit place names mean nothing to me. There’s a constant exchange in our house that goes;
Me “where’s Piddock-under-Mobbleston?”
OH “no idea” (checks Google maps).
5 mins later …
OH “North Goatwrangleshire”
Me “What is?”
OH “That place you asked about”
Me “Oh I’ve moved on from that now. Where’s Crangletown?”
Repeat ad infinitum
Lovely US listings ALL have the state letters (fun to guess for sitters not looking to go there but no doubt meaningful to US residents.
Equally lovely Oz listings have their state.
Please, UK HOs, put at least the county where you are!
