Article needs additional references[edit]

Hi, I tagged the article as the following sections have no references at all

  • Stone mines
  • Site of Roman Villa
  • De Montalt Mill
  • Local flora

Does anyone have any sources they can add to verify these sections? --Pontificalibus (talk) 00:22, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

I've added several references to the sections which lacked them (& removed the banner) hopefully these are now satisfactory.— Rod talk 14:07, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Village category[edit]

The village category of Combe Down is tricky. It was never a village during the existence of Bath and North East Somerset, as it was absorbed into Bath in the 1950s, and is no longer a village. In this respect it is in the same position as Twerton and Weston, Bath which do not use a Village category. So for correctness these three should either be in Category:Villages in Somerset as a former Somerset village, or in no Village category reflecting the current position as with Twerton and Twerton. I'm inclined to drop the Village category. Views? Rwendland (talk) 10:03, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

I don't know the place, so perhaps it isn't really a village in any sense; but the article describes it as a village several times (talking about the present day), so if that's justified, then I think it can also be categorized as a village.--Kotniski (talk) 10:18, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
It should definitely be in Category:Districts of Bath, Somerset & Category:Electoral wards in Bath and North East Somerset each of which cover the whole area, however the small area around the church, shops & as far as Firs Field is known by locals (my parents in law live there) as "the village" - being the traditional centre rather than newer housing estates etc. I think this reflects difficulties in definition of what is a village, which doesn't mean anything in ONS Census data or local government circles.— Rod talk 10:25, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
