Icons of England - Again
How interesting! The Icons of England website has its stats publicly available - ICONS web stats.
Firstly, thank you to all the readers here who visited the icons site 207 times!
I imagine a lot of you were following my link to Fox Hunting - Icons of England in order to vote for it or not.
I note that Fox Hunting is number two in popularity, not bad. The Lake District is more popular though. Strangely the stats tell a different story. Fox Hunting was viewed 40,000 times (I think that is a fair representation of how many votes it got). The next most popular nomination page was Morris Dancing with 11,000, then the Countryside and Pubs with 7 and 5 thousand respectively, with the Austin Maxi and "Yes Minister" fighting it out for bottom place with 70 each.
But no sign of the Lake District page... they wouldn't have just slipped it in above Fox Hunting,would they? No, it must be just hiding in the stats somewhere....
