Much useful material can be gleaned from the guide books and street directories which began to appear in the 18th century. By the late 19th century any significant town should appear in county directories, while major cities had their own directories. Census returns from each decade after 1801 are prime sources for population data, now online at Vision of Britain.
A town of about 100,000 people can have seven or eight major routes leading out of it in an approximate star shape; cities of 500,000 or more have dozens of connections to the nearby towns and villages. One result of this historical development of our urban areas is that although our country is much more densely populated than yours, only London has more than a million people (around 7 million). By contrast, Russia has a population less than three times the population of England, but has 36 cities with around one million inhabitants or more.

Often referred to as ‘the prettiest village in England’, Castle Combe in the Wiltshire Cotswolds is a picturesque little community nestled on the edge of the Bybrook River. Its small pretty streets are lined with quintessential Cotswolds stone-wall cottages and its quaint beauty has attracted the attention of the silver screen. With its location in a sheltered bay on northwest Scotland’s Loch Carron, surrounded by the majestic Highlands, the charming coastal community of Plockton is truly special.

Towns and VillagesThe towns and villages spread over Ireland give the country its intimacy and charm. Any countrywide traverse will yield only a handful of larger settlements of above 1,500 inhabitants; small towns and villages are the norm. Urban genesis in Ireland came in fits and starts, unlike the more stable evolutionary experience of continental Europe. Three pronounced phases of town and village creation are evident: during the heyday of Anglo-Norman settlement, in the plantation era of the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, and under landlord influence in the eighteenth century.
