Comments: Air quality

27. I always noticed a difference dropping into the Thames valley.

Interesting that the house next door and opposite have different levels

It doesn't recognize my postcode.

The photos are from Google Street view. As it only covers the UK, I can't tell what the ranking is, but I suspect quite low, even if not as low as your 1. My last home was on a 2 digit A road yet only scored 24

My current place is at 51, which surprised me, considering it's right on the main road through the (large) village, and the amount of crap that comes into the house when the front windows are open.

Interestingly, the place where I grew up is also a 51.

where I grew up in Co Durham is 11%, where I am now in London is 88%

Out of curiosity I looked up Porthcurno in Cornwall. We had holidays there a few times and I always thought the air was like fine wine. It's 4%.

DH said the picture of his last home, where we moved from 2 years ago, has picture that’s over 12 years old.

Score of 46 here which doesn't surprise me as we are in the centre of town. It will likely become higher as the plan to close a bridge for refurbishment will see an increase in traffic.

I should basically never leave the flat.

56. Not bad for being in a city, I suppose.

Medium, 33, though the picture was at the end of the drive. I checked a house further down the road and the other way, at the corner, and they both had higher scores, so I guess it has to do with the amount of traffic immediately nearby. I don't know whether the score related to the house or the roadway, though - if the latter, then I think my actual score is appreciably less.

Yes, well, where we now live -70%

Where we lived before -98% and we really noticed an improvement in air quality during Lockdown 1

Either way, where we live now is an improvement. But 70% . . !
