With questions ranging from “How often do your wear your wellies”, through to asking how you’d find your way off a foggy moor, our muddy-townie ratio is a tongue-in-cheek way to find out just how ‘muddy’ you are and it has proved to be a popular feature of the site.
Using some computer wizardry (thanks to MM’s Steve) we’ve collated all of the results so far to find out where is the muddiest place in the UK and Ireland and just how many people are 100% muddy.
The muddiest place in the UK and Ireland
Drum roll please. Where do you think the ‘muddiest’ place in the UK and Ireland is?…
It’s Northern Ireland that takes the crown for the ‘muddiest’ place in the UK, with 10% of people taking the top score of 100% muddy and 62% overall scoring 70% or higher. The Republic of Ireland comes in a second with 7% of respondents hitting the 100% muddy mark. England ranks the lowest with just 4% getting the highest muddy rating.
However, if you live in England and are looking to find a date who is as outdoorsy as Ray Mears, then head to East Anglia, where 68% of people scored over 70% muddy.
What percentage of people are 100% muddy?
Overall, less than 1% of people are 100% muddy.
What’s the average score?
The most popular score was 70% muddy, closely followed by 60% muddy. The least popular score (unsurprisingly for a website aimed at country-minded people) was 0% muddy.
