  ENGLAND - English Towns and English Villages
This section of the British Towns and Villages Network is dedicated to the English and the counties of England, since is was designed to present the cities, towns and villages in the setting of their counties.
There is scarcely a county which does not exhibit startling changes of scene, of people and of occupation.
From the densely populated areas in the south east to the wilds of Dartmoor or the North Yorkshire Moors, the topographic desert of the Fens, the hills of central England and the mountains of Cumbria the country is a natural patchwork, one that is perhaps its greatest asset.

  England - LoveToKnow 1911   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The westward prolongation of the great south-western promontory of England, occupied by the county of Cornwall, continues as a rugged ridge broken by a succession of depressions, and exceeds a height of Boo ft., nearly as far as the point where it falls to the ocean in the cliffs of Land's End.
The study of the scenery of England and Wales as a whole, or the study of orographical and geological maps of the country, allows a broad distinction to be drawn between the types of land-forms in the west and in the east.
The chief paths of depressions are from southwest to north-east across England; one track runs across the south-east and eastern counties, and is that followed by a large proportion of the summer and autumn storms, thereby perhaps helping to explain the peculiar liability of the east of England to damage from hail accompanying thunderstorms.

 Rural district - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However many rural districts proved to be too small or poor to be viable, and following the passing of the Local Government Act 1929, 236 rural districts were abolished and merged and amalgamated into larger units.
The typical shape of a rural district was a doughnut shaped ring around a town (which would be either an urban district or a municipal borough).
All rural districts in England and Wales were abolished in 1974 (by the Local Government Act 1972) and were typically merged with nearby urban districts or boroughs to form a uniform pattern of districts, which contained urban and rural areas.

In Huddersfield and its neighbourhood, however, a very important proportion of the clothworking of the entire district is carried on, and much of the finetextured stuffs, conventionally known as "West of England goods", is spun, woven, and finished on the banks of the Colne.
The population of Huddersfield and the surrounding districts are almost entirely engaged in the manufacture of woolthe scattered cotton and silk spinning and weaving establishments which may be found here and there being merely exceptions to the general rule.
The workpeople, on the other hand, maintain that they suffer from the caprice of the employers in bestowing work, and from the frequency with which they are compelled to make repeated journeys to the warehouses or mills before they obtain the yarn which they are to spin and weave in their own homes.

 Report 16 - STRUCTURE OF SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN GEORGIA: ECONOMIES OF SCALE AND DETERMINANTS OF CONSOLIDATION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
A positive relative tax burden indicates that a relatively higher burden is being borne by households in the county district, while a negative value of the RTB signifies that households in the city district bear a greater burden.
Naturally, the larger the population of the independent school district vis-a-vis the county district, the larger the influence of the independent district would be, and the more a consolidated county-wide district would reflect the character of the independent school district.
Because county districts can not refuse the decision by independent school districts to consolidate, and assuming that minorities are not prejudiced against whites, we expect RACE to reduce the likelihood of consolidation if minorities feel that their preferences will be disregarded in a larger school district with a relatively small minority population.

 The Irish In England
Throughout my research into the subject of the Irish in England's industrial north during the early nineteenth century, one fact became quite clear; contemporary writers' treatment of the Irish was both minimal and negative.
Keeping in mind that the majority of Irish migrating to England were strictly agricultural workers in their native country, it is easy to understand their willingness to accept any unskilled, low paying employment offered to them in the English towns.
But that does not hinder the Irishman's competing with the Englishman, and gradually forcing the rate of wages, and with it the Englishman's level of civilization, down to the Irishman's level.
