Norfolk or Cambridgeshire?[edit]

Isn't this place actually in Norfolk rather than Cambridgeshire? Lupin 18:34, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Town or village?[edit]

Whilst the article describes Welney as a town, the 'Welney website' quoted as an external reference describes Welney as a parish and village. A quick google shows no sign of any non-wikipedia source for claiming town status.

So I've added a 'citation needed' tag to the claim; if you can quote a source for Welney being chartered as a town, please cite it in the article and remove my tag. If that doesn't happen within a reasonable time, I will amend the article to describe Welney as a village. -- Chris j wood 12:36, 9 December 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Which county?[edit]

The article includes the words:

There is often confusion about which county Welney is in. This is addressed by its website:

"Welney is both a village and a parish in the south-west corner of the county of Norfolk, just across the border with the county of Cambridgeshire..."

I'm none the wiser! Even the Welney website is confused, it appears. Could someone in the know sort this aspect of the article out please? Cleanup notice added to flag this up for attention. SP-KP 23:57, 8 January 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Although the postal address may be "Welney, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire", it lies within the Norfolk county boundary Si1965 (talk) 21:49, 2 January 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Welney used to be in Cambridgeshire, but the boundary moved so it's now in Norfolk. I don't have a source for this to hand though. Shermozle (talk) 23:33, 10 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

The Welney Website is not confused. The situation is exactly as quoted, perhaps the reader has misunderstood. The western and southern boundaries of the Parish of Welney are the same as the county boundary between Norfolk and Cambridge. Two others corrections to note. (1) The ecclisiastical Parish of Welney was created in 1862 (under an act passed by Government in 1846) when it was split from Upwell. About one-third was then in the Isle of Ely part of Cambridgeshire, and two-thirds in Norfolk. Under Local Government re-organisation in 1894, the Isle of Ely/Cambridgeshire part was transferred to Norfolk. (2) The parish of Welney is in the Borough, not District, of King's Lynn & West Norfolk. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Welneyboy (talkcontribs) 21:57, 25 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
