Only a legitimate nerd will get 9/12 in this English counties quiz

Cumberland? Sounds like a sausage to me but okay

We’ve been in lockdown for a long time now, and the weather’s not exactly what it was last week, so I don’t really feel I need to justify this English counties quiz.

What’s worth saying, however, is that some people take a huge amount of pride in their county. It’s safe to say your inability to discern the different Ridings of Yorkshire – which will become apparent halfway through this quiz – is a source of great upset to some.

If you can score over nine in this English counties quiz, you’re a legitimate, bona fide, nerd. If you can’t, then you probably think the Ordnance Survey is something you get a £10 Amazon voucher for filling out.
