English "provinces"

English "provinces"

England doesn't have provinces! The way England is subdivided is frankly horrendously complex, however, it suffices to say that the examples given are of counties.

The word province, when it doesn't just cause confusion, is more likely to mean the "regions" because some of the original post-WW2 proposals for an official top level subdivision of England used this term.

Hi Jessica,

Thanks for pointing this out, I have changed provinces to counties.

Bonne Continuation!
