Parish History section

The 'Vision of Britain' is a good gazetteer but it is not Parish History material for the most part. Many parishes are very small and have only a few sentences in the gazetteer. It really don't make sense to take a few sentences and reduce it down to a few more sentences and call that the parish history excerpt. It looks like systematically this is what is being done to every parish. There is a Gazetteer section on every parish page that one would think is where gazetteer entries would go.Donjgen 06:33, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

I agree with you Don. I have moved your comment to this talk page and replaced it on the project page with an brief description of what ideally should replace the {{expand section}} template. --Steve (talk| contribs) 13:47, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
