This template has a title of "Towns in Cheshire" and yet many of the places listed seem to be villages? Also, there seems to be a contradiction between places in historic Cheshire and places in post-1974 Cheshire. Warrington seems to make the list when it was formerly in Lancashre, whereas Warburton used to be in Cheshire but is now in Greater Manchester. Divy 10:29, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

I have created a new version. Before it covered towns, but now has links to the authorities and towns. Originally I was going to put villages in it also, but realised it would be too large so instead there is a link to the list of parishes. Let me know what you think - I will start creating similar templates for Greater Manchester and Derbyshire. You are right about Warburton - it was one of the 4 Bucklow parishes that became part of Trafford. The criteria for towns I used was they had to be either an urban district or municipal borough prior to 1974. I also added Frodsham and Poynton as they are big enough to be considered towns.Phil 12:59, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
I have removed places from the template that are still villages (eg Alderley Edge). The criterion for being a town is that (a) they historically used to satisfy certain criteria (see town, (b) their parish council has declared themselves to be a town, whereupon the parish council becomes known as a "town council", or (c) the borough in which they are placed routinely refers to them as a town. These criteria are quite definitive. I've checked all the entries now with all the criteria, and I'm confident the list is now complete and authoritative.  DDStretch  (talk) 01:41, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Missing image[edit]

Is there any way we can get rid of the [[Image:|40px]] from the template header. It's supposed to be for a coat of arms but the only image we have appears to be fair use and therefore ineligable for use in a template. I came here thinking I could just remove it from the template but I see it's a sub-template of {{county}}.  YDAM TALK 14:10, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

I have removed it now from the county template. This was a legacy from the a user removing all the images from the templates due to the no fair use images in templates rule. -- Phildav76 15:52, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Portal link[edit]

Since we now have a Cheshire portal, can we add {{portalpar|Cheshire}} or something similar to this page please, like that done on the Cornwall template? I would do it, but cannot figure out how!Pixie2000 21:34, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Done!  DDStretch  (talk) 01:42, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Changed link from "City of Chester" to "Chester City (district)"[edit]

Since the official website for the district states that it is the name of the district is Chester City (even though it functions as a borough), I've changed the link as well as moved the page. This has meant creating a disambiguation page for the football team and so on. I hope no one objects.  DDStretch  (talk) 19:58, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
