This is more about the built environment and power of cities than property law, but the Centre for Cities has released a map using Patent Office data to track the patent applications issued per head in the UK's major towns and cities. 

Cambridge and Gloucester top the list of the number of applications, but there are some surprising results. Hastings, for example, produces 4.4 patents per 100,000 people, beating the residents of Southampton and Portsmouth, but being beaten by Bournemouth (Silicon Beach? - should I stop?). Sheffield produces 5.62 patents per 100,000 people.
