I moved this page; I doubt there's another Gloucestershire that'd take precedence over the one in Great Britain.Please check Wikitravel:article naming conventions for details. -- Evan 15:25, 26 Aug 2003 (PDT)

Regions and Cities[edit]

The whole of Gloucestershire is in the region of South West England. (See South West England.) English regions are bigger than English counties.

Neither Evesham nor Stroud is a city. (See List of cities in the United Kingdom.)

We use "city" for "urban area"-- towns, communities, villages, hamlets, whatever. There would be an unnecessary overexactness in having separate sections ("Cities", "Towns", "Villages") for each size and type of city. You can put a simple description after the listing if you want to show that an entry isn't really a city-city. I'll do that for Evesham and Stroud. --Evan 12:24, 24 Jun 2005 (EDT)
Also: we use Regions as a name for any sub-national area that can contain one or more urban areas ("cities"). It sounds like "regions" have a formal meaning in England, in which case we should probably avoid using them for sub-county areas. Any suggestions for a good name for areas like the Forest of Dean or the Cotswolds? --Evan 12:40, 24 Jun 2005 (EDT)
