If you like my website, and/or if you've found it useful, please consider making a small donation to my Just Giving page, which I've set up just for this purpose. To begin with I'm collecting for a charity whose work I have benefitted from myself (and continue to do so): the British Heart Foundation. It would be great to raise £100 in the first month.

If you have already donated ... Thank You!

Riparian Cities: United Kingdom

OK, I'll admit it here as well: I nicked the title of this page (and the one linked below) from John Smith: How to Win Any Pub Quiz (Guinness Publishing, 1993, and revised edition 1995).  This was the first place I ever came across the word 'riparian'.  It means 'on or pertaining to a riverbank'.  I just can't think of a better way to describe what these pages do.
