Merge proposal[edit]

Guidelines at Wikipedia:WikiProject UK geography/How to write about settlements state that ideally the civil parish should be the catch-all article, avoiding single line articles on every village and landmark within the parish.

Therefore, I suggest that villages within the parish with a one or two sentence article, ie Dial Post, Littleworth, West Sussex & Partridge Green to be merged and redirected to this parish article. ++ MortimerCat (talk) 08:41, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

That would be a shame. Dial Post is an unusual hamlet, with a unique personality that shares little with the other villages in the parish. Geographically and culturally, its major affiliations were more with Shipley than West Grinstead, and after the 1960's, all primary school children from Dial Post travelled to Shipley for their education. Geologically, it sits in a very interesting position, where the Wealden clays meet the greensands, meaning that the northern side of the village boasts a totally different natural biology and perspective to those observed near Benton's Lane and along Ashurst Lane to the south.

Battle of Knepp[edit]

Since it was first created four years ago this article has included an account of a supposed "Battle of Knepp" in 1252, apparently during the lifetime of King John (who died in 1216). More than five months ago Dougatwiki place a note under this account saying that it "seems to be completely spurious", and calling for references. No references have been added, and I can find no authority for any medieval battle there, so I am removing the account of it. Please do not reinstate it unless you can cite a reliable source, because that's what we always need here at Wikipedia. --Antiquary (talk) 20:04, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
