Preparing for TFD merge[edit]

Hello, I've started a discussion about the start of a TFD merge of two London railway station templates. The discussion is here, I'm just dropping a note here in case anyone is interested. - X201 (talk) 15:48, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Why do our maps start the Thames in Richmond?[edit]

A lot of our maps of London boroughs, such as File:City of Westminster in Greater London.svg, only show the River Thames starting from a point in Richmond. This suggests that the Thames' headwaters are in Richmond! Can't we demand more accuracy than that? NeonMerlin 07:11, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

@NeonMerlin: It's not the headwaters, they are out in Gloucestershire, about a mile north of Kemble. Quite simply, the highest point to which tides normally flow is Teddington Lock, which is in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. --Redrose64 (talk) 07:40, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
