    Default Towns/villages to move from Bristol to Somerset

    • Backwell
    • Clapton in Gordano
    • Cleeve
    • Congresbury
    • Easton in Gordano
    • Flax Bourton
    • Nailsea
    • Portbury
    • Weston in Gordano
    • Wraxall


    I'm a local boy and most people in those parts would identify themselves as Somerset rather than Bristol suburbs.

    All of them are in Somerset as can be told by the breadcrumb when you look at any of them, and the fact they are listed as areas also in Somerset half way down the Somerset page.

    Ah - well when I was attempting to add a pub in Nailsea the other day, it wasn't available in the Somerset drop-down list and was in Bristol...?

    Maybe this was before you changed the towns/suburbs listings, I'll try again tonight.

    The add pub tool currently only shows Postal Towns, so Nailsea shouldn't have been there at all. it relates to the fact that the add pub tool is a lot older than most of the site and pre-dates the addition of outlying areas (which is how we currently describe Nailsea). More here & here & hopefully in the future here.

    The connection to Bristol is to do with the fact that all the places mentioned are part of the Postal Town of Bristol, so looking at Nailsea on wikipedia, you can see the Postal Town listed there.

    I personally would love to remove the counties in the same way that the Royal Mail has, sadly I don't see how the site would work. We get so many complaints it does my head in, personally it was easier when we still used Avon, Bristol is a stupid idea for a County.

    I'll have a look at seeing if I can unlock the outlying areas on the add pub drop downs, we need to be cautious for fear it breaks the add pub tool.
