County of Nottingham vs Nottinghamshire[edit source]

Hi Laytonr1,

I see that you have started a page called Nottingham parishes. From the information that you have included I believe you are recreating something that already exists in the wiki namely Nottinghamshire Parishes. It is true that Nottinghamshire is some times referred to as the County of Nottingham, but the common term is Nottinghamshire and this has been adopted by the wiki. References to Nottingham without "County of" will be taken to mean the city of Nottingham. --Steve (talk| contribs) 08:40, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
