A friend recently said she was visited by a government official who apologised for the length of time it had taken to get around to seeing her. The Guys in London had given her the whole of Yorkshire to cover.
Now as we know Yorkshire lies somewhere in the ‘north’, which to many is an area incorporating the north west, north east, Lake District, and the whole of Scotland including the Orkneys and Shetland isles. Oh and the Hebrides.
In other words 67% of Britain. To help improve the geographical accuracy of a typical southerner if you allocate Yorkshire as a area ‘up north’ for a survey perhaps you should note the following statistics:
County Area in sq kilometres
Total 12169 sq. kilometres
Yorkshire 11903 sq. kilometres
