Welcome to the Cheshire WikiProject, a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of the UK county, Cheshire. We aim to provide complete coverage on subjects related to Cheshire, by creating, expanding, and maintaining articles on people, places, and things resident or native to, or located in Cheshire. We are also the project which maintains the Cheshire Portal.
- To improve all Wikipedia articles that are concerned with Cheshire, including its history, geography, people, constructions and buildings, establishments and customs so that as many as possible become Featured Articles.
- To maintain, improve, and expand the Cheshire Portal.
- Identify 'holes' or omissions in the coverage of Cheshire, and write new articles to remove them.
- All relevant articles should be included in the Category:Cheshire or one of its subcategories.
- Articles about all subjects related to Cheshire, including articles on people, places, and things resident or native to, or located in Cheshire.
- The Cheshire Portal - its maintenance, expansion, and updating.

We shall try to follow the Wikipedia:Manual of Style for our articles.
The process of specifying open tasks is currently taking place on the project's talk page. Please feel free to join in.
We need to begin to assess all articles that fall within our remit. The new assessments sub-page is now accessible here and can provide guidance on how to do this.
|To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject Cheshire:|
We also need to work on all articles that are flagged as needing some kind of cleanup. To help us identify these, a subscription to an automated tool has been made. The output from this should be found on Wikipedia:WikiProject_Cheshire/Cleanup_listing once the bot has done its run. It is updated every few months.

This entire section gives information about Cheshire-related articles as they progress from simple stubs into becoming Featured Articles with Featured Status. In general, articles should move down into later sub-sections, ending up in the "Featured articles" sub-section at the end. The methods that are used to assess articles are described in the next-but-one main section.
Articles up to becoming candidates for but not yet attaining Good Article (GA) status
This section deals with the creation of a basic article from simple stub via a short article into one which can be considered, with a little work, to become a candidate for Good Article (GA) status. Articles can be added at any stage in this sub-section. Once an article moves into a later sub-section (1.2 and beyond), it should never return to this one.
Please feel free to list your new Cheshire-related articles here (newer articles at the top, please). Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Main Page. The following articles have either been created or added to the Cheshire WikiProject recently:
