people on this site must realise that the historic county of Lancashire still exists and that lancashire stretches from manchester and liverpool and goes up to the lake district,stop pretending that greater manchester,merseyside and cumbria are counties when they are not start putting the right counties the historic ones.

As far as WT is concerned that is not correct. Please see the very clear divisions that we use for North West England and elsewhere. There have been a number of very irritating, deliberate edits recently assigning towns which are in Greater Manchester to Lancashire. This just creates work for the WT community in checking and changing them back. Whoever is doing this, please stop now.--Burmesedays 12:10, 3 June 2011 (EDT)

What does "as far as wt is concerned that is not correct" mean that wt can not face the truth that Historic county boundaries were not abolished and still exist,when will this site realise The Historic County Boundaries of Lancashire.

as with every other such decision at WT, it means that this will not be done until there is discussion and consensus is reached to do so.--Burmesedays 23:53, 2 July 2011 (EDT)

Sub-dividing Lancashire (or any other English county[edit]

Is thoroughly unnecessary. Can whoever is creating articles for boroughs within Lancashire please stop until consensus is reached on this talk page to do so. In the meantime, I am redirecting all borough articles back to Lancashire. --Burmesedays 21:31, 25 June 2011 (EDT)

oh what is the point in deleting things which are 100% true?what is the point at all? in future i will be using sites which are correct.i dont understand how people on this site can say that they are not in lancashire when they are.the queen says we re in Lancashire,the prime minister does so if they say we are,we are.i would definitly rather believe someone who is in charge of the country rather than just a few ordinary people who dont know anything about counties. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)

First, perhaps you can tell us specifically you are talking about? What has been deleted and why should it have been retained? Thanks.--Burmesedays 07:15, 9 August 2011 (EDT)
The Historic County Boundaries of all Counties are viewed as important by both locals and the government,as i am from The Lancashire area i and people around here view our Culture and heritage as important.if lets say perhaps a visitor from down south is considering visiting Lancashire,they know that Manchester and Liverpool and all other areas are Part of Lancashire,the same as Huddersfield and Leeds and parts of Yorkshire.When football is played between clubs such as Bolton Wanderers,Bury,Wigan,Blackburn and so on it is known as a Lancashire Derby.The Above teams and more are in The Lancashire football association as well as manchester united and liverpool. If Man utd play leeds it becomes a roses derby.Lancashire and Yorkshire.Lancashires ground is at old trafford.please would someone insert an historic map of Lancashire as it is really important that people recognise our culture and identity. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)


Burmesedays is entirely right that an issue like this has to be resolved by consensus within the community. I accept there are undoubtedly issues here but it's worth taking time out and considering exactly what they are, and then how they relate to the function of WT. A traveller to Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside might well feel confused by the day to day description of what exactly constitutes Lancashire, and where local government boundaries appear to contradict everyday usage. So to my mind it is appropriate to briefly mention the confusion and contradictions that have lead to this. But I don't think that WT is the place to go into an extended history of changes by government to local authority boundaries and the subsequent nomenclature of these regions. It's certainly not the place to grind axes. Bobf 04:08, 11 September 2011 (EDT)
