Din Guardi[edit]

Din Guardi has appeared in at least two articles I know of (this one included) without proper references. I'm from the area and I have never heard of Bamburgh having ever been called "Din Guardi". Most of the locals won't know that either. I've never seen it on any of the small info signs around the castle, either. Although I haven't been to the castle since November ('07).

Therefore, I would ask that Din Guardi have references cited for it for it, or be removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.136.141.247 (talk) 19:15, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Map[edit]

I recommend the removal of the large intrusive map which contains hardly any information, and if clicked, shows even less, not more. The map constitutes what should be a simple link, i.e. by clicking the co-ordinates, the reader can bring up a dozen maps, all far better than that one. Moreover the map, eing large and undetailed, simply takes up right-side space that is the best place for photos. Amandajm (talk) 02:57, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

I think maps of this sort can be useful when they're not taking up space that could be better used as I don't know if most readers are aware that clicking on the co-ordinates in the top right hand corner would take them to Google maps et al. That said, I agree that in this article the map isn't particularly helpful so have removed it. It doesn't help that the map is taller than it is long (no way round that), and the problem is compounded by the article being so short. The article on Warkworth Castle uses the same map, do you think it's a problem there too? Nev1 (talk) 18:11, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
