Avon County

"The demise of the County of Avon was the focus of a BBC documentary called The End of Avon, produced by Linda Orr and Michael Lund and broadcast in 1996. In 2006 Adam Thomas (a BBC Somerset presenter) investigated why Avon refuses to die, for the BBC One regional programme Inside Out West. The county continues to be included in the databases of large corporations as part of addresses in the area, and in names such as Avon Wildlife Trust, the Avon and Somerset Constabulary, and Avon Fire and Rescue Service. Representatives from the organisations said they had no plans to change their names. However, the Royal Mail indicated that it was not necessary to include Avon as part of any address as it had abandoned the use of postal counties in 1996." - Wikipedia c.2008
