Unless you live here, your times will differ...

I do receive quite a few e-mails about these times, 
so here are a couple of Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. I don't live in Halesowen, so will my sunset times be different from yours?

A. Please note that the sunrise and sunset times given in these tables are accurate for my home location (Halesowen, West Midlands, UK.)  The further you are away from here, the greater will be the difference between your own your local sunrise and sunset times, and mine!  
If you would like to calculate sunrise and sunset times for your own location more specifically, then go to the
Earthtools Sunrise/Sunset Calculator .  This provides a zoom-able map of the world, which you can move around to centre your location on the cross +  .  By zooming in, you can get to street level, so you can be pretty accurate. Then ask it to print you a list of sunrise/sunset times for the current year...

Q. Will sunrise and sunset times be different next year?

A. For all practical purposes, there will be very little difference year on year, so unless your need for accuracy is extreme, don't worry about this. If you are worried about a few seconds, then there will be very slight differences - if you know why we have leap years then this will explain it, as our 1st January actually starts about 6 hours earlier in the earth's orbit around the sun each year - this is why we pop in the 366th day every 4 years to make up the 4 x 6 hours lag...  So you could get up to one day's difference at worse, which near the equinoxes (end of March and end of September) could be between 2 and 3 minutes. So on average, the error is only around 1 minute if you assume no changes year by year.
