Would it not be a better idea to merge this with the town of Swindon page? Other largely urban boroughs/unitary authorities of a similar size such as Reading and Newport do this.

Discussion has been settled. Result: use ceremonial counties for disambiguation of places, and in a geographic frame of reference, see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject UK geography#Olney, Milton Keynes; Caversham, Reading; Wanborough, Swindon. Mpvide65 (talk) 22:09, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
