|The flag of the East Riding of Yorkshire|
Following an exhaustive survey in an unnamed British Sunday newspaper supplement, we are now able to definitively rank order English counties in terms of their beauty and sheer loveliness. Here's the top fifteen:-
1. Yorkshire (East Riding)
2. Yorkshire (North Riding)
3. Yorkshire (West Riding)
Please note that the list completely ignores any county boundary changes unlawfully endorsed by Westminster politicians in the early nineteen seventies. For your further information, at the bottom end of the list come Surrey, Middlesex, Rutland and finally Lancashire. My condolences to any Lancastrians reading this post for your county certainly contains many beautiful views - mainly eastwards into your friendly neighbouring county - Yorkshire.
