Dyrham Park[edit]

Verey and Brooks (Pevsner 2000) has a good entry for Dyrham. If you don't have access, I could add a little. KJP1 (talk) 11:06, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Geography of Somerset[edit]

When I took on working on the article Geography of Somerset, I did not realise that you have been working on it periodically since at least 2009. You are welcome to join with me in trying to bring it to GA status if you wish. Some parts of the article were unreferenced and I find it easier to rewrite sections from the sources I have rather than try to find sources for the existing text, but I have no wish to offend anyone.

Not many counties have geography articles. On the whole, I am aiming to replicate the structure of Geography of Wales which I took to GA during the "Awaken the Dragon" contest. The section "The changing face of Somerset" I propose to remove entirely, the first half is essay-like and the second half is interesting but too detailed, and anyway off-topic.

Dyrham Park ref[edit]

Hi Rod. I see Dyrham Park is up at one of the preps for DYK. The "around 1511" is mildly confusing for me as the source you use for that claim says "In 1511 a licence...." with no vagaries surrounding the year. I've even noticed that image caption which gives the precise date, not just year (Royal licence to empark Dyrham granted by king Henry VIII to William Denys, Esquire of the Body, 5 June 1511) Is there a reason you've changed it to "around 1511"? Cheers. The Rambling Man (talk) 05:49, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

DYK for Dyrham Park[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 21 September 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Dyrham Park, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the grounds of Dyrham Park (pictured) include an emparkment granted in 1511 and still populated by fallow deer? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Dyrham Park. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Dyrham Park), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Hi Rod. I have List of Sites of Special Scientific Interest in Essex at FLC, and I should be grateful for a review if you have time. Dudley Miles (talk) 16:02, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
