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?!

I've removed "Located on the edge of the town, it inhabits a striking position in the landscape overlooking the stunning Porthmeor Beach, which is very popular with surfers." and "The beautiful natural landscape, the distinctive quality of light and the materials and forms of the historic town continue to inspire local and visiting artists alike." entirely because not only is it absolutely rediculous to talk like that in an encyclopedia, but also because wikipedia isn't a damn travel brochure. I've also modified some of the sentences to make them read a bit better. I've seperated the bit about Barbera Hepworth from the history section, as they have absolutely nothing to do with eachother. As it is this article still needs more work but it's at least not as much of an eyesore as it was before. Shame on the contributor for not bothering to read the rules.--Badharlick 12:35, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
I first saw beautiful pottery at Aylesford Priory in Kent where Michael Leach had been asked to produce a range in keeping with the history of that place. The results were wonderful and people owing pieces from that period treasure them as works of art. I have been able to spend some time producing my own work which I sold at the Greenwich Art Market. I am so pleased that there seems to be a recognition of the works of the potters in St.Ives and the importance of their place in the history of the town. I do hope that the Leach Pottery will preserved as sensitively as Barbara Hepworth's house and garden as I am sure it will become a place of pilgramage for potter's and others from all over the world. from Merle J.
