Updating my Church Bells of Warwickshire website - seemed like a good idea at the time, going to take much longer than I thought!
I noticed that it was taking me a long time to move through the alphabet, so I checked on Dove. If names were distributed evenly (yes I know X & Z, etc) about 3.85% would start with each letter.
Out of 7083 towers
292 start with A , 4.12%
825 start with B, 11.63%
626 start with C. 8.84%
Almost a quarter therefore start with the one of the first 3 letters of the alphabet. Even allowing for the inclusion of Birmingham and Bristol, which bumps up the number, this seems a lot. Is there any reason for this?
