Some Google Maps things

Story location: Home / bits-n-bobs /
18/Dec/2010

About a week ago or so, Emma was surprised to notice that Google Maps is incapable of calculating a route from Manchester to Buxton. It works if you type in a place within Buxton, and also if you choose to calculate a walking route.

Next, looking at the live traffic on Google Maps, I noticed the region of slow traffic seemed to be concentrated in a band across the middle of the country. When I checked the weather map on the BBC, it looked like this is where all the snow has been.

There appear to be some strange place names in Shropshire. I noticed these while checking the route to Ironbridge.

Yorkshire vs Lancashire

Story location: Home / bits-n-bobs /
09/Nov/2006

Not quite the War of the Roses but a not-too-serious comparison between Yorkshire and Lancashire . In the interest of fairness I am taking the pre-1970's county boundaries, so I'll include Liverpool and Manchester as 'Old' Lancashire . As little research as possible has been conducted, only simple fact-checking to make sure I haven't mis-remembered anything important.

Eleanor Crosses

Story location: Home / bits-n-bobs /
27/Nov/2005

When Eleanor of Castile (wife of Edward I) died near Lincoln in 1290, her body was taken back to Westminster. At each overnight stop, Edward ordered a cross to be erected:

  1. Harby, Nottinghamshire (near Lincoln)
  2. Grantham, Lincolnshire
  3. Stamford, Lincolnshire
  4. Geddington, Northamptonshire (near Kettering)
  5. Hardingstone, near Northampton
  6. Stony Stratford (near Milton Keynes)
  7. Woburn, Bedfordshire
  8. Dunstable, Bedfordshire
  9. St Albans, Hertfordshire
  10. Waltham (now Waltham Cross) near Cheshunt in Hertfordshire
  11. Westcheap (Cheapside), London
  12. Charing (now Charing Cross)

See more ....
To repeat the journey today by car would take a little over 5 hours, travelling 170 miles (avoiding motorways). The route would be:

  1. Leave Harby and head west to the A1133 then south to the A1
  2. Leave the A1 to visit Grantham
  3. Back onto the A1 to Stamford. Leave town on the A43 towards Corby and Kettering.
  4. The A43 goes through Geddington. Continue towards Northampton where it joins the A45.
  5. South of Northampton, take a detour up the A508 to the cross.
  6. Turn around and continue down the A508 to where it meets the A5 at Stony Stratford.
  7. Follow the A5 south (either the modern one through Milton Keynes or the old Watling street) before turning off for Woburn.
  8. Take the A4012 south to the A5 and on to Dunstable.
  9. Continue south on the A5 then A5183 towards St Albans.
  10. For the next leg of the journey you can either cheat and take the M25 to Junction 25 or go cross country taking the A414, A1M, B157 and finally B198 to Waltham Cross
  11. Take the A1055 and A10 into London towards Cheapside
  12. From there, the A40 then A4 take you to Charing Cross

I've missed out a lot of the finer detail of the route for clarity.

The only crosses still standing are the ones at Geddington, Hardingstone and Waltham Cross. The famous cross at Charing is a more modern replica.



One for sorrow...

Story location: Home / bits-n-bobs /
24/Nov/2005

There are lots of version of the Magpie Counting rhymes. This one seems fairly typical:

One for sorrow, two for joy,
Three for a girl, four for a boy,
Five for silver, six for gold,
Seven for a secret never to be told.

England have won the Ashes. The last time this happened, in 1987, Coventry won the FA Cup. The world has changed a lot since then.

Other 1987 trivia:

  • Highest grossing films included: Three Men and a Baby, Fatal Attraction, Good Morning Vietnam
  • Johnny Logan won Eurovision with the song Hold Me Now
  • Best selling single was Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up
