    Default Stats - Pub Photos by County

    According to the Pub photos by county page, "Pubs Galore has has 49984 open pubs listed in the UK of which 45437 (90.9%) have been photographed by our users" which shows considerable progress since I last checked.

    The top 15 currently looks like this:

    Rank County Open Pubs With Photos %
    1 Hertfordshire 768 768 100
    2 Bristol (County) 696 696 100
    3 Buckinghamshire 460 460 100
    4 Isle Of Wight 165 165 100
    5 Western Isles 32 32 100
    6 London (Central) 2118 2116 99.9
    7 Oxfordshire 667 666 99.9
    8 Suffolk 645 644 99.8
    9 Essex 1047 1044 99.7
    10 Cumbria 769 766 99.6
    11 Central 230 229 99.6
    12 Surrey 680 677 99.6
    13 Berkshire 587 583 99.3
    14 West Sussex 535 530 99.1
    15 Gloucestershire 598 592 99.0

    So close on ten more counties! And then there is...

    It is a good record indeed but having visited NI last year for the first time ever I have no ambition to return there again but if I did it would certainly include a return to Carrickfergus.

    Good to know we've passed the 90% mark! I shall be targeting a few of the patchy bits of Wales this year but no plans to do NI yet. One minor plea - could the 'Pictureless Pubs' query be applied to counties as well as postal towns, or is that too much work?
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    No notion of how much work would be involved for Dave, but it would certainly be of benefit to completist photographers.

    Shropshire is really doing a lot better than its 96.4% photographed pubs because of the 21 pubs without photo, 10 of them are actually in Powys, Wales! Some are 20 miles across the border, mostly in the Tanat Valley. The Post Office has given them an Oswestry postcode.

    The most "patchy bit" of Wales is the counties on the South Wales coast. The 887 un-photographed pubs is nearly 20% of the total in an comparative small area with less than 4% of the total pubs. Worse than the rest of Wales and rural Scotland. Only N.Ireland is understandably worse.

    I've been on an expedition and returned with photos of most of the missing pubs from Shropshire. Plus a few others that are in Powys even on the admission of the Royal Mail's postcoding. Highlights of the trip included steep hills, torrential rain then blazing hot sun and being attacked by swarms of flies (it gets sweaty on those climbs, you know). All in a day's work.

    As promised, just knocked off about 20, mainly Dyfed with a few Powys thrown in. Next target - some or all of the Glamorgans!
