Good effort Paul, I was going to put up the photograph I took of the AA Box at Dava which kicked off the AA Box Challenge thread when we came across it on our way up from Grantown on Spey to Nairn. Couldnt work out if it was still in Invernessshire or just crept into Old Nairnshire :-D

I don't think it's in either Neil. I reckon it's in Morayshire.

EDIT

It looks like back in the early 1900s it was in Elginshire!

My last contribution for this evening is a picture of a photo I came across showing Me and my Navigator Lee on our way to an autotest after the Curtiss Bennett rally in 1993ish. The photo was taken in the car park next to The Rock Park in Llandrindodd Wells giving me the right to claim Radnorshire. The rest I'll leave for tomorrow :-D

Nice old fashioned former garage at Llandrindod Wells i posted in the early days of the Garages Gallery thread. Also the home of Riversimple, continuing to do their Hydrogen Car development.

Radnorshire bagged and put on the map, under the MTM colours!
day 1 map so far

I'm sure in your photo archives there are a few more counties you can bag. Huntingdon right now is free :-D
Looks as if Wiltshire is too...

Will this do?

Excellent effort so far England is almost done!
England left as of now......
Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Dorset and Kent.
Which poor County is going to suffer the ignonimity of being the last to be claimed in England?

Peter/Gibbo you need to get in quick.....it could be your County!
Plenty to go at in Scotland.....be a shame if it is completely invaded by the Newcastle Falcon with a little help from Paul R.

Still a decent crop left in Wales, and Ireland.....virgin territory at the moment.

Regards Neil
