With due respect to Tim Jackson, it is a myth that English county boundaries

detached outliers that existed before 1844?  See by way of an explanation
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counties_%28Detached_Parts%29_Act_1844 - does
Halesowen count as being in Shropshire or Worcestershire?  And is Wokingham
in Wiltshire or Berkshire?
