Removed milefortlets 6, 7 and 8[edit]

I've removed redlinks for Milefortlets 6, 7 and 8 from the template. As I've explained on the pages for Milefortlet 5 and Milefortlet 9, there is no evidence for Milefortlets 6, 7 and 8. The coastline here is interrupted by Moricambe Bay. It was thought that they may have been eroded away but in more modern times the view has been that the forts never existed. It looks a bit odd on the template, but it seemed better to remove these supposed forts, rather than create stubs pages on forts which don't exist. Pasicles (talk) 18:08, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Removed milefortlet 26[edit]

I've also removed the redlink for Milefortlet 26. As explained on the Pastscape entry for Milefortlet 26. There seems to have been confusion on how many fortlets there were south of Milefortlet 23. Anyway, long story cut short, the whole system is believed to finish at Tower 25B. Pasicles (talk) 18:25, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
