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

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)
