Welsh is also a regional language in some parts of England (around Oswestry, Clun and Archenfield)

DeFacto I was surprised by your rapid removal of the external link to GENUKI which contains a wealth of largely-reliable information and onward links to counties and parishes in great detail and with sources. Tony Holkham (Talk) 10:44, 6 February 2023 (UTC) To be specific, I think it falls under WP:ELYES, point no. 3. Tony Holkham (Talk) 10:52, 6 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Tony Holkham, being self-published by volunteers, we cannot be sure how accurate or reliable the data is on that site. It therefore fails WP:EL per WP:LINKSTOAVOID item Any site that misleads the reader by use of factually inaccurate material or unverifiable research, except to a limited extent in articles about the viewpoints that the site is presenting, at least. -- DeFacto (talk). 12:34, 6 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@DeFacto - I think GENUKI is acceptable on many counts: (a) it presents data from many sources that can be fact-checked elsewhere; (b) it is rare to find on GENUKI factually inaccurate material or unverifiable research, and even more rarely opinion; (c) it is a source of sources, some of which cannot be found elsewhere; (d) it is widely-used as a reference on hundreds of Wikipedia geographical articles. So I don't think it fails WP:EL. Having said that, I don't feel strongly about it being included in EL in this article, but on balance I think it is a helpful, rather than unhelpful, link. Anyone else care to comment? Tony Holkham (Talk) 13:43, 6 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
