Page organisation[edit]

Should "Coombe Abbey" be on the same page as "Coombe Country Park"? Snowman 12:33, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

  • No replies, so pages merged. Snowman 10:09, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
Is there any reason for the de-merger as the articles are short and really go together. Keith D (talk) 16:30, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

An historic? Grammar / spelling point[edit]

I know that this might seem very twee, but unless you don't pronounce the 'h' in historic, you shouldn't use an as the article, it should be 'a historic'. I'm pointing this out as I don't know how to edit the page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.40.170.231 (talkcontribs) 10:20, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

The rule is usually that you use "a" before a consonant and "an" before a vowel. However, the h in "historic" is not really acting like a consonant. It forms a sort of dipthong with the i. For that reason, it sounds better to say "an historic," even if you pronounce the h more than British pronunciation 217.41.45.25 (talk) 11:15, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
