With regards to BT, I have noticed many friends facebook posts stating "posted near Veryan" Which is a tiny little village on the Roseland Peninsular. This appears to be people posting in the west of Cornwall, so must be where the exchange that BT are using for most of west cornwall recently

My geography of Cornwall is fading. But that sounds like their connections are terminating at Goon Hilly Satellite Earth Station. Where the big comms dishes are and also the end of some deep sea Fibre Cables ;-)

You're losing your touch, thetrout: you are indeed quite right!  Wink

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

I haven't lived in Cornwall for over 5 years and it's 2AM so surely an honorable brownie is in order.

The name Roseland Peninsular puzzled me... I always knew it as The Lizard Peninsular Wink

But for a useless fact of the day, when you make an Overseas Phone Call, the chances are it's routed via Goon Hilly Grin

If you're ever in the area, it's well worth a visit! A fantastic day out and some of the things and history you'll pick up IMO is fascinating Grin

As an aside I didn't think I'd spend the first 30 minutes of my 22nd year in Coach F on a HST to Taunton but each to their own... Wink Grin Tongue

Of course before Goon Hilly it was Porthcurno where all the deep sea cables were terminated.

However, the Veryan I know is not on the Lizard Peninsula which is where Goon Hilly is, but is indeed on the Roseland Peninsula, which is to the east of the Fal estuary.

In the last few hours, I've moved from Brighton to Hove.  This move appears to have occurred retrospectively.

My university also appears to have relocated from it's false location of Kempston to the actual location of Cranfield.

The reason its puzzling you is that the lizard peninsular and roseland peninsulars are two seperate places, roseland is about 25 miles east of the lizard, where st mawes is heading towards st austell from truro. Therefore completely unrelated to goonhilly

I'll have a look and see what the overnight stats say about French visits then.

"Featuring France" ...

In the week to midnight last night, we had 33 visits from France.  On average, each visited 2.55 pages.  36% of the visits were to just a single page.  Here's how they were distributed:



By comparison, we had 5583 visits from the UK, on average looking at 4.67 pages, out of a total of 6019 visits to the site. 131 visits can't be identified to their country of origin.  There were a total of 52 visiting countries, with single visits form some distant countries such as Kyrgyzstan, Uganda, South Korea and Saudi Arabia.

In the UK, there were more visits from each of Cheltenham (39), Yeovil (43), Staines (51) Guildford (55), Melksham (59) and  Teddington (67) than there were from the whole of France. Top 4 UK visiting cities were London, Bristol, Oxford and Bath, accounting between just those 4 for 2143 of the 5583 UK visits.  Amongst towns from which we had just a single visit were Addlestone, Basildon, Chatteris, Dartford, Eastleigh, Fleetwood, Gravesend, Hailsham, Ilkley, Kettering, Lancing, Macclesfield, Nantwich, Ormskirk, Pudsey, Ripon, Saxmundham, Tadcaster, Uttoxeter and  Wallington.
