Blog » UK Counties Select Box

A populated select list (input box) with the counties of the UK as options.

This counties select list was last updated on the 8th March 2007, and should be accurate for that date (and I should imagine, far beyond). If you spot any inaccuracies, please let me know.

The English counties were updated in 2008 to use the list of ceremonial counties as defined by the Lieutenancies Act 1997 (Wikipedia has more info on counties).
