English County Tops (Historic)

This list details the highest point within (or sometimes on) the boundary of each county. However, county boundaries change over time and there are different county lists, covering the traditional historic counties and the more recent mixtures of administrative areas.

I have decided to concentrate on the Historic County Tops, which is a smaller number for one thing, but it's also the list most appropriate to my age. The historic county tops is a traditional list of counties from which people usually take their local cultural identity. In the UK they were never abolished, they just ceased to have administrative function.
