See drop-down box for suggested article edit guidelines:

  • Be bold - if you know something about Cornwall then put it in! We value your contributions and don't be afraid if your spelling isn't great as there are plenty of spelling and grammar experts on clean-up duty!
  • Articles on settlements in Cornwall should be written using the standard set of headings approved by the UK geography WikiProject's guideline How to write about settlements.
  • At WikiProject Cornwall we subscribe to the policies laid down by Wikipedia - particularly civility and consensus building. We are aware that the wording on Cornish entries can sometimes be a contentious topic, especially those concerning geography. You don't have to agree with everything but there is no excuse for rudeness and these things are best solved through consensus building and compromise. For more information see WP:CornwallGuideline.
  • These pages are not platforms for political discussion. Issues relating to Cornish politics should be restricted to those pages that directly deal with these issues (such as Constitutional status of Cornwall, Cornish nationalism, etc) and should not overflow into other articles.
  • Most of all have fun editing - that's the reason we all do this, right?!

Roman fort[edit]

Can anyone explain what the relevance of the diagram of a Roman castrum is to this article? I see it has been re-introduced for no discernable reason. Murgatroyd49 (talk) 16:32, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

I rather suspect it is because "A Roman fort, only the third known in Cornwall, was discovered next to the church in 2008". DuncanHill (talk) 16:43, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
I appreciate that but a generic diagram is not especially relevant to the article about the town. It appears, along with others, in the wikilinked article on Roman castra. A picture of the dig, for instance, would be more useful, or a diagram of what the actual fort looked like. Murgatroyd49 (talk) 16:50, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Local heraldry[edit]

There are some very nice graphics of heraldic shields in this section but in most cases, no clue as to the local relevance. Could someone with more knowledge on the subject add a note to each explaining the connection with Calstock, rather rhan just Cornwall generally? Murgatroyd49 (talk) 10:41, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

Derivation of the name[edit]

An editor has supplied a derivation of the name from old Cornish and Old English words (Kelly and Stock). However the actual quote is:

The first part of Calstock is said to have been derived from the Cornish word for a wood – “Kelly” - the “stock” element being Anglo-Saxon for “place”. So “Calystock” or “Kellistock” might have meant “wooded place”.

It only claims it may be the derivation and there is no supporting evidence for this and the document is a self-published genealogical essay that doesn't cite any sources. Murgatroyd49 (talk) 08:28, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
