Talk:West Country

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

I moved West Country from West England because almost all the links I saw (and also the article) talked about the West Country. I think that this is the most common English name too. I have heard of the West Country, I do not hear about West England. -- Huttite 06:00, 23 Mar 2005 (EST)

You are right: "West England" is neither a term in general use nor a recognizable entity. Note, however, that "the West Country" is not an official description: for me it covers Dorset, Somerset, Devon, and Cornwall. Whether it includes all of Gloucestershire (though I feel it did include all of the former county of Avon, centred on Bristol) and Wiltshire (in particular, Salisbury) is, I feel, rather more debatable... -- Picapica 20:43, 23 Jun 2005 (EDT)

The Map is now out of date due to the fact that Avon no longer exists. The correct areas should include:

Gloucestershire County, South Gloucestershire District, Bristol City, Bath and North East Somerset District, North Somerset District, Somerset County,

Will try to do some work on it.
