Historic County Tops

The map and list depict the traditional historic counties and their highest points above sea level.  These are the counties from which people generally take their local cultural identity.

The Isle of Man is a self-governing British Crown Dependency rather than a county, but has been included in the list.

Though the traditional historic counties and their boundaries still exist, local government administrative changes have been largely adopted by map-makers and in road-signage, giving us new administrative "counties".

All these changes to administrative areas make the historic County Tops a more satisfactory list for bagging, as they are unchangeable.  However, this website does include pages for the Administrative (1974) County Tops, and for the current County and Unitary Authority Tops.
