12017-12-12 21:06:40 UTClakedistrict Welcome to OpenStreetMap, Petenjen. Thanks for your edits. You've added a nursing home in the middle of a roundabout (at Did you mean to do that? Let me know if you need help correcting it or you have any questions.

lakedistrict :-)
12017-12-07 13:21:40 UTClakedistrict Hi Charkyem, nice edits! Just a quick tip: to make sure that the buildings you draw have nice square corners, click on the side of the building once you have drawn it (so it glows red/pink) and then press the S key (or right click then square). Hope this helps. Look forward to seeing more edits from...
12017-12-05 18:40:10 UTClakedistrict Hi Baa90, I've changed this back to military area from industrial - it's land owned by the Royal Navy so landuse=military is the correct tag. Please remember to leave a changeset comment which describes the changes you have made to the map in the future. It seems that you've got the hang of how to e...
12017-12-05 18:32:19 UTClakedistrict Welcome to OpenStreetMap Brenty1892! I see that you requested an edit review so I'm just letting you know that the changes you have made look good to me - hopefully we'll see more edits from you soon! :-)
12017-12-05 18:29:28 UTClakedistrict Hi Dan, Please only add things to OpenStreetMap that actually exist. I've undone your edit for you. In the future please leave a changeset comment that describes what changes you have made to the map. Thanks :-)
12017-11-29 20:24:34 UTClakedistrict Usually a fitness station is an outdoor facility (see but you've put this inside a building - did you mean to use leisure=fitness_centre for an indoor gym?

Also in you've left the comment...
22017-11-30 16:32:16 UTCBeselch Gonzalez Peña a indoor gym actually....and is a sport club too!! No streptease club
32017-12-01 15:52:19 UTClakedistrict Thanks for the info, I've changed it to a gym/fitness centre and added some details from their website. Thanks again for your edits in Newcastle, you can also edit on a computer at which allows you to add different points of interest that aren't in :)
12017-11-21 14:53:14 UTClakedistrict *Walkergate
12017-11-15 13:12:29 UTClakedistrict Why did you change it to subway? Only a small portion of the route is underground so it's probably best described as a light rail system.
22017-11-20 09:40:18 UTCTom317 Yes, but still it is metro. But if you feel, it's better described as a light rail, you can change it back.
12017-11-11 15:25:49 UTClakedistrict Hi Meersbrook, I know that this is an old changeset but what are the untagged lines you added across the railway line such as ?
Thanks, lakedistrict :)
12017-11-10 15:31:19 UTClakedistrict Thanks for all your edits around Newcastle, particularly the cycling infrastructure ones. In this edit it looks like you've missed the building=yes tag on ? :-)
22017-11-10 15:32:50 UTClakedistrict Sorry, ignore me - I hadn't spotted it was part of a relation. Keep up the good work!
32017-11-13 11:21:43 UTCjimstn Thanks! I also hadn't spotted that it was part of a multipolygon/relation! Not sure why it has been created like that in the first place. It might be a job for the future to tidy that up.
12017-11-09 15:22:51 UTClakedistrict Thanks for your recent changes simon_84, it's good to see some edits in this part of the county.

Are you sure that Abbey Road, New Road and the road through Dalton are highway =secondary (B roads)? They need a ref (eg B123) if they are. For reference OS OpenData StreetView doesn't show them as se...
12017-11-09 12:47:28 UTClakedistrict FYI iD's put layer=-1 tags on the building_passages which aren't needed. Also are you able to resolve this ?
22017-11-09 13:10:00 UTCgurglypipe Whoops, thanks for pointing that out. Fixed.

12017-10-16 20:34:47 UTClakedistrict Hi Beselch Gonzalez Peña,

I left this message as a reply to one of your 5 identical notes. I'm copying it here as well in case you didn't see it and for discussion.

You seem to have added quite a few "vinyls reco...
22017-11-05 15:28:23 UTClakedistrict I've fixed them all for you in Also, please try and capitalise the first letter of each word in shop names, since they are proper nouns. :)
12017-10-26 16:32:13 UTCgurglypipe The cycle path (non-segregated pavement on the west side) on the A591 needs some work still. Needs a re-survey to work out which bits are cycle path and which bits are foot-only, and whether any of it is NCN6 any more. Probably best to move it into a separate way and set sidewalk=separate on the A59...
22017-10-26 17:37:25 UTClakedistrict NCN6 has been completely rerouted through Bowness and the western shore; I surveyed the new route last year. Another user deleted much of the original route along the A591 when it was moved, so there are just a few sections of cycleway left on the map now, although it all still exists as a cycleway ...
32017-10-27 13:18:42 UTCgurglypipe When was it re-routed? Are these Mapillary images still relevant?

Sounds like the cycle lane needs to be reinstated on the A591 (but not as part of the NCN6 re...
42017-10-27 16:55:11 UTClakedistrict It was rerouted last year (, the current NCN6 relation is up to date ( Nothing's really changed since those Mapillary images were taken so they're good to use.
12017-10-24 14:51:41 UTClakedistrict Welocme to OSM and thanks for your edits. It's good practice to tag the building with what it is used for (eg shop, pub, guest house etc). This is a bunk house for climbing groups etc to rent out isn't it? I've tagged similar buildings as tourism=alpine_hut, but you could use tourism=chalet (holiday...
12017-10-22 22:52:30 UTCgurglypipe Wow, nice work!
22017-10-23 00:39:11 UTClakedistrict Thanks!
12017-10-22 22:47:08 UTCgurglypipe Nice. #CumbriaRoads work?
22017-10-23 00:38:28 UTClakedistrict Thanks. Ah yes, missed the hashtag and wiki link. All #CumbriaRoads tags (lit, sidewalk, turn:lanes etc) are now on the A591 between Orrest Head Farm (start of 30 zone to the west) and Cooks House Corner A592 mini roundabout, but I haven't put give ways on all the side roads yet.
12017-10-22 21:30:16 UTClakedistrict Thanks for the edits but I'm not sure that they are entirely correct. Are you sure that the northern part of the road through the car park takes such a central position? Last time I checked it went along the edge of the library gardens, like it was mapped previously. Also are WTC really the operator...
22017-10-22 21:52:43 UTCbigfatfrog67 Hi,

Yes, I was there today. There is parking either side of the parking isle, which is down the centre. I will need to double check the operators as I have the ticket still in the car, will look tomorrow. How else would you tag the entrance way?

32017-10-23 00:34:12 UTClakedistrict Thanks for the description, it must have changed a bit since I was last there (about a year ago). I normally tag entrances as just highway=service, I always thought that driveway was more for residential properties, but I guess it still works.
lakedistrict :)
42017-11-02 14:23:01 UTCbigfatfrog67 I just thought I'd let you know that I checked the parking ticket and you were right so I've updated that accordingly.
12017-10-16 21:27:01 UTClakedistrict Hi lakeuk,

Thanks for your edit. However it is best to update the tags on the node rather than deleting it because the shop unit and address still physically exists. For this one you could have removed the name tag and changed shop=clothes to disused:shop=yes. Please keep this in mind for future ...
22017-10-16 21:30:58 UTClakedistrict I've managed to undelete both the Room and Native nodes and I've updated them to show that they're currently disused, along with fixmes to update in the future. :)
12017-10-07 00:00:31 UTCgurglypipe What’s a frog permit? Without a changeset description, this looks like vandalism.
22017-10-10 11:43:36 UTClakedistrict Reverted in changeset 52788976
32017-10-14 17:11:11 UTCgurglypipe From a private message from pamman:

> With reference to Mill Yard, Staveley the intention was to make users aware that parking can no longer be regarded as free. During weekdays the first 2 hours are free after that a “Frog Permit” is required, apparently if you are not a frog you&...
42017-10-14 17:16:38 UTCgurglypipe Hmm, this is a tricky one to tag. I think the tags as they currently stand – fee=no maxstay=2h – are the most appropriate I can come up with. They are correct, in that the first 2h are free. If people choose to park there, they should see the big signs explaining what this Frog Permit sy...
52017-10-14 17:53:15 UTCpamman Agree, even if a Frog Permit is obtained the parking is still free.
62017-10-14 18:16:24 UTClakedistrict I agree with your tagging ideas gurglypipe, I suppose any other info could always go in a note= tag. Maybe some conditional tags could be used here if any of them are suitable:
12017-06-28 17:02:14 UTClakedistrict Hi pamman, do you remember where you got the name "Jakey Tanners" from for and ? The source:name=OS_OpenData_StreetView tag refers to the previous tagged name, Brigsteer Road.
22017-10-10 08:24:58 UTCgurglypipe There are no road signs calling it Jakey Tanners. There are some references to a road called Jakey Tanners in the Kendal Oral History Group records, but no details online. I’m going to revert this back to Brigsteer Road. pamman, please reply with some source information if you think that stret...
32017-10-10 11:16:54 UTClakedistrict When I first asked this I got a message saying that the name had been "passed down through generations of Kendalians", but as a local I've never heard this name in my life. If there is a source it should be put under loc_name. (
42017-10-10 11:29:37 UTCgurglypipe Indeed. I was also wondering whether Jakey Tanners is the name of the track to the SE just E of the A591 bridge.
52017-10-13 13:38:38 UTCpamman Jakey Tanners is the name of the road up the hill from the 30 mph sign to the brow of that hill where ‘Dick the Fruiterer’ had a market garden behind the high wall at the entrance to Stainbank Green. The name has been (and still is) used by generations of Kendalians, obviously since Jake...
62017-10-14 17:09:10 UTCgurglypipe Thanks for the information. I agree that the name Jakey Tanners should be in the map, but I don’t think it should be the canonical name of the road. The canonical name according to the modern naming databases (the OS Location database and the Royal Mail address database) is Brigsteer Road. As ...
72017-10-14 17:48:24 UTCpamman loc-name added
82017-10-14 18:11:25 UTClakedistrict Thanks for the info and thanks for adding the name back to the map, pamman.
12017-10-01 18:50:01 UTClakedistrict Good work. Does this resolve ?
22017-10-01 21:08:44 UTCgurglypipe It does. I’ve closed that note, thanks for pointing it out.
12017-10-01 13:24:19 UTClakedistrict This doesn't sound like an attraction - have a look in the wiki ( for a better tag. Additional tags should go on the way of the pond rather than a new node in the middle too. I'd move the name to description= too.
12017-09-27 10:14:22 UTCgurglypipe Nice work!
22017-09-27 11:47:38 UTClakedistrict Thanks!
12017-08-02 21:00:59 UTClakedistrict Thanks for your edits in Ambleside, but Tesco Express isn't open 24/7 - was that a mistake? Also do you remember what type of shop "Hide & Horn" is or what it sells?
Happy mapping, lakedistrict :-)
22017-09-24 16:57:32 UTClakedistrict Thanks for fixing in I fixed Hide & Horn in - it was a leather shop.
12017-09-23 11:47:18 UTClakedistrict Hi nickharri,
Thanks for your edits to the paths and cairns. I notice that you requested a review so I'm just letting you know that they all look good to me. Any questions just ask.
Happy mapping, lakedistrict :)
12017-09-19 12:36:50 UTClakedistrict Does this mean that the Post Office at has closed and it has relocated here? The old node needs updating to its new use if that's the case.
12017-09-09 17:58:23 UTClakedistrict The previous version of the phone number was correct, since the area code is 013394. so it should be +44 15394 36354
22017-09-09 18:06:57 UTClakedistrict *area code is 015394
32017-09-10 09:52:29 UTCArthtoach Apologies, I checked that 01539 was a valid area code, not relalising there was a more specific one. I've changed this back.
12017-09-06 17:23:06 UTClakedistrict Did you mean to tag as tertiary? highway=service seems a more appropriate tag for this location.
22017-09-07 08:08:44 UTCMike Parfitt Perhaps its a usage thing. My concept of a service road is the sort of roads that go down the back of shops for delivery lorries, or those leading into/outof car parks and inbetween their lines of painted bays. This was a narrow single-track road with passing places going through open country, far...
12017-08-13 21:27:02 UTCmatt_twam_asi Hi Dan, thanks for updating these shops. Do you have any idea what will be replacing the cafe? It may be worthwhile keeping the node but removing the cafe and name tags as currently there is useful address information that will be lost.
22017-08-20 12:25:48 UTClakedistrict Hi Matt and Dan, I've undeleted the node and updated the tags on it so that the address info isn't lost.
12017-08-11 19:28:48 UTCgurglypipe Wow, that’s fantastic! I thought I’d finished the A5074, but obviously I got ahead of myself at the A592 junction and forgot about the rest up to the A591. Thanks for finishing it off!
22017-08-11 20:19:26 UTClakedistrict Thanks! I think I've got the hang of the tagging now, what road are you going to do next?
32017-08-11 20:47:49 UTCgurglypipe I’ll probably do the Lake District passes and valleys next. That’s probably got a bit more impact than doing something like the A5074.
12017-08-10 18:26:16 UTCgurglypipe This includes reworking the junction with Brantfell Road and St. Martin’s Hill to make it a cross-roads, since there seems to be no restriction on coasting down Brantfell Road and onto St. Martin’s Hill in real life.
22017-08-10 20:54:21 UTClakedistrict Yes, Brantfell Rd and St. Martins Hill is a crossroads, the rest of the edits look good too :)
12017-08-05 11:13:42 UTClakedistrict Thanks for the edits. The sign at the gates actually reads "Kirkstone Quarries", and Burlington seem to be the first/only ones to use the spelling "Pett's", previously only the spelling "Pets" has been used. (Defra and OS both use "Pets")

Do you know if it ...
22017-08-06 06:21:30 UTCCasualMapper I'm reading the book Slate Mining in the Lake District by Alastair Cameron and it called it Petts. It went bust in 2012 and was bough by Burlington
On their website they call it Petts, http://www.burlingt...
32017-08-06 12:52:21 UTClakedistrict Thanks for the info, I've added the other names I mentioned into an alt_name tag. :D
42017-08-08 13:08:51 UTCAoc-One Sorry to butt in. The area is called Pets Brae, so Pets would be right. However I bet it's a tax thing from the 2012 bankruptcy - a similar but different name for the new company. it's still active it seems also.
12017-08-02 20:52:36 UTClakedistrict Hi Gabriel,
In future edits please add a changeset comment explaining what edits you have made so that other mappers can see what you've done. Thanks.

(something along the lines of "corrected road types and junctions and added a caravan park in High Newton" would have worked here)
12017-07-27 18:19:54 UTClakedistrict Thanks :-)
12017-07-02 16:37:55 UTCMike Baggaley HI, you seem to have added access=no to Gooseholme Bridge, with a note that it was closed when surveyed. However, as the way has foot=yes, the access=no has no effect on pedestrians, which is the only form of transport normally enabled for a footway. I suggest removing the foot tag if this bridge is...
22017-07-04 11:05:34 UTClakedistrict Hi Mike, Thanks for this advice, I've now removed the foot=yes tag since it isn't required on highway=footway and currently the bridge is closed to all.
12017-06-19 22:24:53 UTClakedistrict I notice that the survey dates say 2016. Is this correct or did you mean 2017?
12017-06-03 15:13:29 UTClakedistrict What attraction is here? Can you give more details? The Bing imagery just shows a field...
12017-05-23 15:17:10 UTCgurglypipe Why did you just delete this entire railway line with no comment?
22017-05-25 15:04:08 UTClakedistrict Looks like it is just the old railway=abandoned line that has been deleted, the current railway line is still mapped. But to echo what gurglypipe said - please leave changeset comments in the future. Thanks :-)
32017-05-25 15:11:17 UTCgurglypipe Correct, but surely the abandoned railway should remain mapped? It’s a useful historical bit of information.
42017-05-25 17:37:19 UTClakedistrict Wiki page:

However there is still a railway line here even though its just a single line now and not double. Also the current track takes the centre of the trackbed now, not just half of it like it used to when it was double track. I'm n...
52017-05-25 19:54:36 UTCpamman The existing rail line was moved to the centre of the double track bed, therefore no old track bed exists. The reason for removing the track bed was that 2 bridges were shown at each intersection, this was picked up on "keep right" (
12017-05-25 14:59:16 UTClakedistrict I've deleted your co-op node since it's already been mapped in the correct location.
12017-05-25 14:58:25 UTClakedistrict Bridge House was already mapped, so I've deleted your duplicate node (wrong location anyway). "599" bus stop has the wrong name, but needs checking.
12017-03-05 20:37:46 UTClakedistrict HI Yorvik,
I'm not sure why you've tagged Heathwaite Convenience Stores ( as a post office - it lost its post office counter around 10 years ago!
lakedistrict :-)
22017-03-06 01:02:53 UTCYorvik Prestigitator I was basing it on the signs above the shop windows saying "Heathwaite Post Office & Stores" which were still up recently.
I will remove the amenity=post_office tag if you think the shop signs are incorrect.
32017-03-06 10:59:11 UTClakedistrict Yes, despite the signs the post office counter has gone. Thanks for removing the tag.
42017-03-06 11:20:23 UTCYorvik Prestigitator no problem, thank you for the inside information
12017-03-05 18:02:16 UTClakedistrict Hi Dan,
Is there a reason why you changed East Street to highway=living_street? I'm not too familiar with that tag myself. I thought that highway=pedestrian would be more correct, since there are "Pedestrian Zone" signs at each end. Certain vehicles can still drive on highway=pedestrian s...
12016-12-02 17:48:44 UTClakedistrict What is the line/way that you've added ( )? It has a source tag but nothing else.
12016-11-26 22:57:19 UTClakedistrict Hi Daniel,
I think these were supposed to be mapped as railway=stop and placed on the metro lines. Since you have now correctly put railway stops on the Metro tracks I have copied across the naptan codes onto the stop nodes that you added. It would be useful to add platform numbers to the stop node...
12016-10-02 11:20:33 UTClakedistrict Hi,
Welcome to OpenStreetMap. I notice that you have deleted a number of ways (lines such as roads and paths among other features) from the map. If you are local or have recently visited you will of course know that these roads and paths do still exist, so they shouldn't have been deleted.
22016-10-02 12:53:59 UTClakedistrict I have managed to undo your deletions in a revert. Any questions just ask. :-)

12016-07-27 20:50:08 UTClakedistrict Hi Guinevere23, is actually called Log Lane? I know that you didn't add that name but just wondered if you had spotted any signs with this name or seen it on a map. :-)
22016-07-28 17:21:47 UTCGuinevere23 Hi lakedistrict, actually there were some signs with a name for that lane and I have a feeling that it was something else other than Log Lane because I thought it was unusual for it to have a name but, unfortunately, I didn't record what it was ... doh!
12016-07-04 21:20:40 UTClakedistrict Hi Michael, do you remember or know where the name "Log Lane" came from for ? I don't remember seeing this name anywhere and OS Street View gives it a different name (Truss Lane). I'll resurvey if I need to. All the best :-)
12016-07-03 19:49:28 UTClakedistrict Is the whole road really a bridge or just the bit over the motorway?
12016-07-02 22:30:25 UTClakedistrict I've separated the metro lines from the road. (You have to remove the relations first, then add them back after) I don't think that the metro actually takes the same route as New Bridge St W but actually follows a route under which I think is a vent.
12016-06-09 23:31:20 UTClakedistrict Welcome to OSM SkaBook! Thanks for your very detailed edits - Ambleside looks very well mapped now. :-)
22016-06-10 07:47:51 UTCSkaBook Hi,
A discrete actioncam and a sunny day helps!
12016-04-01 14:27:46 UTCSkidle Ha! Yes, you're right, that was (mostly)me. I had no exact idea of where they were, just that they existed. I added them in the hope they would be amended. Generally I see folks will adjust stuff to help, but see the task of adding stuff as too onerous, so I though I'd get it started.
22016-04-01 15:52:31 UTClakedistrict Thanks for adding them - saved me (or someone else) a lot of time! :-)
12016-03-21 13:30:23 UTClakedistrict Where does the name Red Brow come from on way 403956832?
12016-02-21 18:34:17 UTClakedistrict Hi pmailkeey, the A591 itself hasn't been diverted or moved to the temporary road or the West Thirlmere road, these are just the routes that the shuttle buses will take. Any chance you can revert your edits around Thirlmere/Dunmail Raise? Thanks

PS Please add a note to the map before doing big ch...
22016-02-21 21:16:05 UTCpmailkeey It seems you've failed to include any proof of what you claim whereas what is there now is quite logical.
32016-02-21 22:24:57 UTClakedistrict Changing the road to construction is good, but it retains its A591 number. The temp track and road to the west of Thirlmere haven't gained the A591 number and are not trunk roads. But hopefully the road will be reopened soon!
