Assessment Report

  1. Article needs to be expanded using Wikipedia:WikiProject UK geography/How to write about settlements as a guide.
  2. It should continue to make use of sections, using Wikipedia:WikiProject UK geography/How to write about settlements as a guide.
  3. Photos need to be added.
  4. References and Citations are crucial for wikipedia, and so these must be added as the article is expanded. Make sure that as many as possible are "in-line" citations.(See WP:References, WP:V, and WP:CITE for guidance.)

Wiki Links on this Page[edit]

Appleton and Walton point to disambiguation pages. Before this can be resolved satisfactorily, the articles "Appleton, Warrington" and "Walton, Warrington" need writing or at least Stubs. RobPlatt

This seems now to have been done.  DDStretch  (talk) 21:10, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

Socio-economic data[edit]

The various socio-economic and demographic data presented are meaningless without contextualisation and proper sourcing. To be interpretable, there needs to be some attempt to give benchmark data (e.g. the corresponding figures for, say, the North West or the UK). Dates and sources are also critical. Unless someone is prepared to do that, by drawing on the info in the pdf attachment, I'd be inclined to delete what's there, and to leave just the factsheet.

I tend to agree with you. In fact, the overall population figure isnot referenced in an acceptable way for wikipedia either at the moment. I can (and will) easily fix that, but your point about contextualisation may take a little longer. What would be good would be to have 3 benchmarks to compare the figures with: (a) the Borough, (b) the region, and (c) the UK. I've omitted a Cheshire benchmark, since Warrington is a unitary authority, and also an England benchmark, but perhaps people feel differently about whether these should be included or not. The nice thing is, once the benchmarks have been worked out for one settlement, they can apply to potentially many more in certain cases, and so it might well be a major contribution just to add them. Thoughts?  DDStretch  (talk) 21:15, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

Please improve![edit]

I lived in Stockton Heath 40 years ago. There is a massive amount of information that needs adding. I could add a lot but what I remember will be largely out of date now or just plain wrong after all this time. Surely there are some local residents who can improve this entry?

I would hope so too. If you can recall some stuff, why not post it here, and perhaps some people can try to get it verified enough to include in the article? It might be worth a go...  DDStretch  (talk) 20:34, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
OK, I've left it a year and it is still dreadfully incomplete so I will add a few bits and hope that people who still live there will improve the article. (talk) 20:43, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Stockton Heath is no longer a village[edit]

Stockton Heath is no longer a village. It is a civil parish and suburb of Warrington town. I have removed references to it currently beiing a village. It has not been s villgae since the local government reforms of 1974. It is clearly visble on map within the suburbs of Warrington, not outside the general urban area which would for exanmple apply to the nearby villages of Lymm, Culcheth or Burtonwood which are within warringtons unitary boundary. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:55, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
