Portbury Dock - Airbus 380
Thanks for putting in references for this. Many of the more active Wikipedians have the bad habit of simply deleting anything they regard as unreferenced, poorly-formatted, etc. Which means that I don't spend a lot of time on my contributions; Because some bastard is quite likely to delete them.
Other things you could do:-
- Change the IGG Airbus transportation map to include Portbury.
- Change the Portbury popup prompt list to include Royal Portbury Dock.
Last year you kindly contributed to the above article's peer review or or FAC or both. An issue has arisen from yesterday's TFA appearance, and is under discussion on the article's talk. Briefly: an editor added into the text the cited information that Bondfield's was privately known as "Maggie", and then incorporated this into the lead so the subject appeared as Margaret Grace ("Maggie") Bondfield. I have removed the nickname from the lead, and stated my position on the talkpage. I would be pleased if you could visit and briefly comment there. Brianboulton (talk) 16:31, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
I see you've been busy expanding Cumberland Basin (Bristol).
Given the increasing recent interest locally in preserving this bridge, I was thinking that it was time we had a specific article on Brunel's swivel bridge, under that name. It has an importance to Brunel, and to moving bridges, greater than was realised until the last couple of years.
Note also that some of balloon flange girder is incorrect (and has probably propagated by now). The bridges over the basin locks have quite an age range between them and Brunel's involvement was only with the earlier batch. This is well documented now, but again it's only stuff that has emerged recently and only the bridge preservation people really have an accurate version.

Re: Pic of Redcliffe Shot Tower
I've found this engraving in commons (and on our article on St Mary Redcliffe). I've almost convinced myself that this shows the shot tower on its left edge. I think it is about the right location. It has a hoist(?) that doesn't appear on the later photo, and the windows of the lower building are all wrong. Of course that could be artistic license, or passage of time. I don't think I'm going to add it to the article because (a) I'm not sure enough and (b) I'm not convinced it is accurate enough, but it is intriguing. What do you think?. -- chris_j_wood (talk) 20:10, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi Rod, I've now wikilinked List of public art in the City of Westminster much more fully, and have addressed some other points at the FLC listing, too. Would you mind continuing your comments on the review or striking them out, as appopriate? Cheers, Ham II (talk) 17:35, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
