You are going to have to take a route through your claimed Counties when you head north Mick, and avoid Leicester :-D .

We still need to find an original picture of Leicestershire to complete the England map. Again there was a wedding we attended where pictures were taken, but I think I will be clutching at straws. We did stop off at Ashby de la Zouch once just because it had an unusual name. I think it was shut and I kerbed my wheels turning round.

So Englands last county still remaining unclaimed is Leicestershire
and Wales' last County to be Claimed in Brecknockshire

Original photos need to be found to put them out of their misery.

Map updated
hopefully satisfies the star spotters!

You already have your star in Durhamshire Steve......the map we are working from is the Old Counties of Durham and Northumberland without the incumberance of tyne and wear etc.

This one is debateable as to whether it can be counted, as it is on the Isle of Wight (considered by the mainland to be part of Hampshire, but by the Islanders to be a separate part of the UK). The photo was taken from Brading Common, looking towards Ventnor and Shanklin.
