We're on the Surrey / Hampshire / Berkshire borders.
Re: [acmold] Random & Pointless Things That Really Annoy You
There are all sorts of anomalies around here regarding real and imagined boundaries but this area is usually classed as South East. I'd say the South East finishes at about Basingstoke / Alton.
I lok forward to the day when the local councils get together and form themselves into a unitary authority across the three county boundaries. Surrey Heath BC came up with the idea to abolish itself to save money but some Hampshire CC people are against it. We may even invite Bracknell Forest to the party as well. It'd make sense as the communication links and towns in the area cross county boundaries all the time and the councils already have to come to agreements about who's responsible for road maintenance etc. so having one authority based around what the ONS call the Aldershot Urban Area (http://en.wikipedia.org/...Aldershot_Urban_Area)
would make things easier IMO.
The area is already known as the Blackwater Valley. Can't see anyone being against that as the name for the unitary authority if it ever happens.
