Is Your Hometown Unique?

I had a client recently ask me why he's getting calls from Birmingham when he's based in Southampton.

It turns out people from Shirley, Birmingham were finding him organically and contacting him.

I decided to see how many other Shirley's there were in the UK and was surprised to find that most results were useless.

Most websites were newspapers that displayed just 10 cities and were very "click-bait".

Anyway - I'd like to introduce my fun side-project: UK Towns With The Same Name

There's actually quite a few (+11,000) places that share the same name.

Please Note: If a places boundary is between counties, it will show up twice.
