Talk:Mickle Fell

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Could someone explain the term modern yorkshire?, as yorkshire is not (as a whole) used in any form of regional or local government I think the term is unclear and weasely. Mickle fell should always be Yorkshire's highest peak, Whernside might be the highest peak in North Yorkshire or the highest peak in the Yorkshire and Humber region but I disagree with it being referred to as Yorkshire's highest peak.

I sentence about whernside in brackets should be removed.--Marshman21 (talk) 13:41, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

I think this has been fixed - now mentions "historic yorkshire".

I agree with the above that the definition of a "modern Yorkshire" seems inappropriate. I have revised to clear things up using more correct terminology and also tried to retain the valid point of interest for peak baggers re: Whernside. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:45, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

High cup[edit]

As far as I can see High cup is nearer to murton and dufton fells and not on mickle fell. I think this section should be moved, but am not an expert on this subject, so may have misunderstood. Can someone check please.Sf5xeplus (talk)

Recent change[edit]

The recent change in the details of the counties that this is in is wrong as the place cannot be in 2 ceremonial counties at the same time. The text plus the note gives it in County Durham and North Yorkshire so something is wrong and clarification is needed. The change did not make it clearer but worse.

currently it says this It is the highest point of both the ceremonial county of County Durham and the historic county of Yorkshire, lying in the former Teesdale district which was transferred under the Local Government Act 1972 - ?? makes sense to me.Sf5xeplus (talk) 01:00, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Sorry me mis-reading it. Probably needs some clarification to stop others mis-reading it as well. What does the transferred bit relate to and why mention Teesdale at all? Keith D (talk) 17:19, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
Not sure (tried to clarify - Teesdale is the bit it is in that was transferred under the boundary changes) - I agree it is still confusing - I've changed it a bit maybe for the worse. If you can make it clearer we'll all be grateful. Sf5xeplus (talk) 17:33, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
