Over the last couple of years I have been slowly but surely working my
way up the country with the civil parishes. I have South East England,
South West England London, and East of England are just about complete.
I am now working on East Midlands. 

North East England, North West England, Yorkshire and the Humber, West
Midlands and Wales could do with some love however, and Northern Ireland
is a special case as the OSNI haven't released the boundary data AFAIK.
