Wikilinks etc[edit]

This article contains several redlinks which could possibly redirect to existing articles but I wanted to check:

There may be others but these jumped out at me.— Rod talk 09:41, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Rod, and I did my best with these, foreseeing your scrutiny. I made them redlinks because, however small, they were civil parishes and that seems to me to make them notable. Of course, creating a redirect doesn't prevent someone from creating an article on it, but it removes the immediate incentive to create an article!
  • "The ancient parish of Thorn Coffin, known since 1884 as Thorne, lies 2 miles north-west of Yeovil."
  • "The ancient parish of Northover was 438 a. in extent in 1838... and may have formed the northern half of a bridgehead settlement, Ilchester forming the southern half."
  • "The extra-parochial district of Eastrip lay 2 km. north-east of Bruton between the parishes of Bruton and Brewham and was presumably named from its position east of Bruton."
  • "The ancient parish of Podimore Milton, known as Middleton or Milton Abbatis from its ownership by Glastonbury abbey and later as Milton Podimore, derives part of its name from the Puddi moor which was shared with Yeovilton."
NB, some of the names on the page were existing redirects, such as Sock Dennis. Moonraker (talk) 20:27, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
May as well use it. Moonraker (talk) 22:36, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Changed Eastrip back to a redlink since the quote above states it is near Bruton, not the Wilts place near Colerne. Genuk has "Abolished 25.3.1885 to become parts of the parishes of South Brewham and Bruton". Wire723 (talk) 10:42, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
