Land Registry data August 2022

I'm uploading the latest Land Registry data to my website. Sale prices continue to fall but more slowly. And right on cue, the government have reduced Stamp Duty in a bid to get prices moving up again. Unfortunately their other budget changes managed to spook the markets meaning mortgage rates are heading up, so it's quite likely they'll be getting less revenue from Stamp Duty whilst also failing to get an election boost.

Filter segments by Local Legend

A long time ago, one of the users of my Strava Segment Explorer asked for the ability to filter segments by whether they had a Local Legend. Well, now you can! Most segments still don't have the data required so it may not be currently that useful, but over time it should become more helpful. From my own experimentation, it seems the segments that don't have a Local Legend set are ones nobody has ridden recently or that are flagged as hazardous

Downloadable segment lists

I've just added a new feature to the site. When using the segment explorer, you can download a CSV file of the segments you're viewing. The CSV file will include all the segments I know about in the area, which could be more than what is displayed on the map. 

I've limited the maximum area for which the site will return data, mostly to protect my server from malicious or daft users.

The columns returned are currently just what's displayed in the table. If you need other data, let me know. Also let me know if you have any suggestions or find any problems

Land Registry data July 2022

I'm in the process of uploading the latest house sales data for July 2022 to my website. According to the Land Registry, prices are falling on an annual basis but this article caught my eye which claims prices are going up by 10% per year. The Nationwide base their calculations of a different set of data and they probably calculate the numbers differently to me so it's unlikely they would agree completely, but it's still interesting that the direction of travel is completely different. Still, they think the average price of a house is £273,751, my calculations from the Land Registry put it at £266,796, which is in the same ballpark. Maybe they did some funky calculations to remove the effect of the Stamp Duty holiday from last year?

GB station usage for 2020-2021

I've updated the GB station usage data for 2020-2021. As you may expect, the usage of stations collapsed during this period of time, something to do with a pandemic, you may remember it.

The data came out last November, but I completely forgot about it. I've now added a reminder for this year and subsequent years.

Land Registry data for June 2022

I'm uploading the latest property data from the Land Registry to my website. Whilst the price of everything else is going through the roof, the price of houses have started going down for the first time in about ten years. The main reason for this is something I hadn't noticed before. Just before the Stamp Duty holiday ended, sales volumes and prices went ballistic. Those figures have now dropped out of the annual price calculations leading to a big drop in prices. The architect of this classic boom and bust could well be our next PM.
