12018-08-09 08:13:08 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Is that the house where you live or stayed for a while? It looks like an ordinary house not a tourist apartment. If it's a house it can be better described rather than described by misleading tags. If you need help please just ask.
Regards Bernard.
22018-08-15 18:18:55 UTCBCNorwich No response so removed POI
12018-08-15 18:15:58 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The POI you've added, shop=variety_store is placed in the middle of the road. With no name or address it is really of no value to OSM or its users. Could you add an address, name and reposition the POI. If you need help please just ask.

Regards Bernard.
12018-08-15 13:05:57 UTCBCNorwich Hi, does the public have access to the fitness_centre? If not it should be tagged as private.
Regards Bernard
12018-08-14 18:46:32 UTCBCNorwich Hi, you've duplicated a lot of these houses, maybe all of them. Removing the duplication's should be easy but if you need help let me know.
Regards Bernard.

12018-08-10 06:06:49 UTCBCNorwich Hi, does the path join the road at either end please?
Regards Bernard.
22018-08-13 14:39:53 UTCBCNorwich Unless you can join the path to the highway network it is of no value to OSM. As such it ought be removed.
Regards Bernard
12018-08-13 12:23:41 UTCBCNorwich Hi the address interpolation was correct. I've reversed your amendment and remove duplicated address data from the building outline.
12018-08-13 12:23:15 UTCBCNorwich Hi the address interpolation was correct. I've reversed your amendment and remove duplicated address data from the building outline.
12018-08-13 07:51:58 UTCBCNorwich Hi, adjacent houses with party walls are best if joined together. Some of the one you've mapped have the party walls with gaps between them of even overlapping.
Regards Bernard
12018-08-12 20:47:22 UTCKen159 small correction: should be shown as Bois Moor Road (not Boismoor)
22018-08-13 06:13:11 UTCBCNorwich OK thanks for the info name is now changed.
Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Please feel free to make any small corrections like this yourself if you feel confident. If you're in any doubt about anything please feel free to ask. Or query the forum.
Regards Bernard
12018-08-05 06:23:32 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
It looks like your first edit went a bit awry. No house or address was added to OSM, just a line tagged area. Incorrect as a line can't be an area, this should be removed.
If you can explain what you are trying to do maybe I can help, either by commenting below ...
22018-08-11 18:30:27 UTCBCNorwich No response so line removed.
12018-08-11 08:23:05 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Is Severn Place really one-way, if so how does the traffic get out? There is a noexit=yes tag at the north end which suggests the road may be restricted access but you still should be able to get out of it.
Regards Bernard.
22018-08-11 08:38:10 UTCBCNorwich Hi, is Way: 615942515 part of Homebase, the garden center, or has it now been converted to a separate office?

22018-07-28 11:36:42 UTCDerekthecat Hi Bernard,
When using the "snap to roads" function on runkeeper it was showing some sections of the A1 as inaccessible and circumventing them, which has been fixed by changing foot access to yes. I don't know how to post screen shots here to show you this. If this has problematic implica...
32018-08-10 07:20:52 UTCBCNorwich Hi, sorry for the delay. The problem then is with Runkeeper as foot=designated should be accepted as meaning foot access is allowed.

Where a path or track is tagged as highway=path, designation=public_footpath then the foot access should be tagged as foot=designated, not as foot=yes.
There are ...
42018-08-10 07:22:08 UTCBCNorwich I should have added that it would be advisable to inform Runkeeper of the problem.
12018-08-10 06:24:12 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Erith is the English name of the Cemetery, please see here :- http://www.parksandgardens.org/places-and-people/site/7207

I wonder if you meant to add the tag the name in Spanish, if so the tag is name:sp=Erithà Cemetery.

Regards Bernard
12018-08-10 05:56:38 UTCBCNorwich Hi, the play area does not require a name as you used that name on the park.

Regards Bernard
12018-08-09 06:23:12 UTCBCNorwich Hi, from the two addresses this looks like a pair of semidetached houses withe one being converted into two flats. Would this assumption be correct? If so the situation can be more clearly represented in the outline of the building.
Regards Bernard.
22018-08-09 08:51:19 UTCNuka_z_lego Hi
It is a big divided house.
Looking from:
...the front there are (flat nr 1 & flat nr 2)
...the back there are (60a & 60b)
32018-08-09 18:03:58 UTCBCNorwich Hi I've divided the large building into the two houses, from the Esri imagery. I can't figure out how the four flats are situated though. Are you saying the house number 60 is divided into four flats?
Regards Bernard
42018-08-10 09:42:40 UTCNuka_z_lego Hi, yes it is exactly as you said. The building with number 60 has two flats (nr 1 & 2) on the front and two flats (nr 60a & 60b) on the back.
Regards
12018-08-09 06:16:08 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Is this building flats/apartments (up and down) or maybe semi-detached houses please? The database can accommodate this extra information and thus better inform users.
Regards Bernard,
22018-08-09 08:32:33 UTCNuka_z_lego Hi
It’s a semidetached house. Looking form the right side number 2 is first.

Looking form the right side number 2 is first.

52018-08-09 17:28:56 UTCBCNorwich Hi, OK both buildings now divided into the two properties, addresses amended.

Please note that the post code is should be divided into two parts separated by a single space: the outward code (space) and the inward code respectively.

12018-07-23 19:11:01 UTCBCNorwich Hi, are you sure this is the route of the public footpath? Has it been diverted southwards to this position? Because it's unusual for a public footpath to be a dead end way.

A cycle-way sign 100 metre's away would not usually indicate this footpath being a cycle-way. A cycle-way is usually signed where it leaves/meets the highway so one would expect some sign at the other end of Mawson Close.

22018-06-01 16:53:06 UTCFlic Sorry, I think as my first comment I was unintentionally confusing! I've only changed the footpath tag to explicitly allow cycles, as they are directed down here.

22018-05-22 09:21:25 UTCPantaloon Hi Bernard, there is a connection, but this is used as a rat-run and is not an adopted road; the service road you refer to is actually a bridleway.
32018-05-26 12:23:42 UTCtrigpoint In that case it should be mapped as a bridleway rather than being removed. That will allow it to be used by walkers/cyclists and horses.

The problem for OSM is that features ought to be verifiable on the ground. I quote from https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Good_practi...
42018-03-20 19:30:18 UTCInternational Circus Stardust Entertainment Hi Bernard,
I live and work from Hastings, on the sunny south coast. I recently deiced to get a registered business address for my company, Kemp House, 152 – 160 City Road, London. The reason I did this was to give my company a more professional appearance.
I only recently came across Open ...
52018-03-22 19:04:22 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
OpenStreetMap isn't a business directory - as Bernard said, it's designed for things that are geographically verifiable. For example, the Moorfields Eye Hospital is verifiable by anyone (there are lots of signs for it) but if you've just got a mailing address in a building on the City Road the...

12018-03-18 08:31:25 UTCBCNorwich Hello Tom, I'm sure those fences do not go through those houses. Thus the mapping is incorrect.
It's very easy to map the fences each side of the buildings, and even better to terrace the buildings. Then the the fences can more accurately be aligned to the buildings. I've corrected a few at the cor...

12018-03-16 08:59:54 UTCBCNorwich Hi, by deleting a feature you throw away all the mapping history. Far better to amend the existing feature and keep the history. I've reverted this change and marked/tagged the building as disused:name=Tesco Metro

Regards Bernard
12018-03-15 16:28:27 UTCBCNorwich Hello there and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
When the building is drawn and it has a sole or main occupier it's best to tag the building outline rather than add a POI.
Regards Bernard.
22018-03-15 17:48:49 UTCGerard Butler Many thanks Bernard, will look to change as soon as possible
12018-03-15 16:13:29 UTCBCNorwich West Maldon Recreation Ground, I've added back landuse=recreation_ground
12018-03-15 15:32:29 UTCBCNorwich Removed "name=playground" I doubt the name is playground.

12018-03-15 15:13:43 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I've changed this to footway, as it's a footway each end this would block horse use. I doubt if a rider would wish to take a horse over there anyway.
12018-03-15 13:54:29 UTCBCNorwich attraction=animal

Is the feature and it's name verifiable to everyone on the ground? If it is actually a warren then there are better tags.

12018-03-15 13:13:44 UTCBCNorwich Hi, your newly added housing estate area, (area way is not described,the node tagged name=housing estate is incorrect, that's not the proper name), is within an already mapped residential area. Thus it's an unnecessary duplication that can be removed.
Regards Bernard.
12018-03-15 07:30:15 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
As you've mapped an area there's no need for an additional POI. I've placed the POI data on the area. The database recognizes a feature tagged shop as an area so no need for the area=yes tag.
Hope that's OK Regards Bernard.
12018-03-15 07:15:06 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
This area is already within an area mapped as residential so your new tagging is unneeded duplication. Thus I have reverted it to the original tag of recreation, there is some sort of park or recreational area here.
Regards Bernard
12018-03-14 14:04:02 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Your new data was placed on an address tag only, so gave no indication of a shop. Your new data is somewhat duplicating a shop POI mapped 3 years ago by https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/The%20Who%20Shop.

12018-03-11 10:24:27 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
unfortunately your construction area is un-tagged and one section doesn't encircle an area. It thus serves no purpose.

Could you please rectify these problems? If you...
12018-03-09 20:29:41 UTCBCNorwich Hi, in the absence of an intermittent tag the OSM database defaults to presuming the feature is not intermittent. Thus the tag intermittent=no is not necessary. In most cases negative tags are not needed and if added would only serve to bloat the database.
Regards Bernard.

12018-02-27 07:23:46 UTCBCNorwich Hi, several problems. Duplication of footpaths. Paths going to field outline rather than extending to road. Duplication of areas. New areas on top of existing areas without adjusting the existing areas (school).
22018-02-27 07:29:43 UTCBCNorwich Sorry the above looks a bit abrupt, I just wish to bring these points to your attention. New mapping is always welcome but it's best to be slow and sure.

12018-02-04 08:30:45 UTCBCNorwich Intrigued, 2nd what?
12018-01-28 07:28:31 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Just wanted to let you know that gates (Node: 5366894203 and Node: 5366894204) are not connected to the path, so do not pose a barrier to that way. I've squared up the houses at Peregrine Close and adjusted the land areas.
Regards Bernard
22018-02-04 07:28:58 UTCBCNorwich No response so adjustments made.
12018-02-03 17:38:01 UTCBCNorwich Hi and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
A better descriptive tag for the buildings would be building=apartments.
Regards Bernard
12018-02-03 17:20:30 UTCBCNorwich Hi, you don't have park areas in cemetery's. I've redrawn the area inside the circular service road to separate it from the road and tagged it as grass.
Regards Bernard
12018-01-23 13:21:16 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
With no description to these outlines the database does not know what they are. They'll thus be ignored. If the features are dwellings then building=house will allow the outlines to be rendered. In Potlatch2 left panel click "unknown" from the drop down...

12018-02-02 18:38:26 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
An area can be described in OSM with all its attributes. So this area is both woodland and park.

I think it may be that only a small part of the area mapped is actually Birchwood Nature Park, (and it would include the grassy area as well). The larger area bein...
12018-02-02 18:00:53 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've removed your POI because the information is duplication, the info is contained in the area outline tagging.

12018-01-31 07:38:34 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I notice your pond is not shown on any images that I can find. In fact the area is house gardens.

Believing it fiction I've removed the pond, if I'm wrong I apologise but please show how your information of the pond existing is verifiable.

Regards Bernard.
12018-01-30 19:00:40 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
You assumed correctly that the node/way-point was incorrectly positioned. Only with a lot more experience would you be aware that the node had been dragged away from it's original position. Thus resulting in the anomaly you saw on the map.
The node represented a...
12018-01-30 08:34:28 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've amended your POI tagging to OSM best practice. The database will now better interpret the info. I could not find the credit card type (visa, mastercard) you accept so you could amend that.

Regards Bernard
12018-01-27 19:30:17 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I removed the park area from in the cemetery and removed the park tag from the cemetery.
Regards Bernard
12018-01-27 16:58:07 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

Removed two undescribed areas (looked like building duplication's.
12018-01-21 07:31:04 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Is this really a playground? It looks like a delivery/loading area for B&Q. You've drawn it over a building and gates and walls. could you please verify the feature or re-position it if a mistake has been made?
Please respond here to confirm or deny.
Regards Bernard.
22018-01-25 13:23:24 UTCBCNorwich No response so I've removed the feature.
12018-01-22 17:54:39 UTCBCNorwich Hi, the leisure=park tag needs to go on an area to be meaningful, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dpark

12018-01-22 14:54:32 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I've tagged the barrier as bollards and joined the barrier to the way. Thus the OSM database can recognize the bollards as interrupting passage along the way. Added foot and cycle as allowed traffic through the barrier.
Regards Bernard.
22018-01-22 22:10:27 UTCjæwesome excellent, in my yank mind bollards are usually the barrier bars on a pivot. I glanced thru but that is clearly a better classification. I also swore I checked foot & cycle but no cars. cheers, good catches
12018-01-21 09:26:55 UTCBCNorwich Hi, The footpath crosses some highways (Croft Street, Newtownlands Road) but you've not shown how this is achieved. Does the path bridge the other ways or join to them?
Regards Bernard
12018-01-21 09:22:03 UTCBCNorwich Hello, I was wondering why you've drawn a park over a residential area, a mistake? Also the footways don't look logical not joining properly, one a duplication of a service road. Then another drawn over the houses.

Has the area recently been redeveloped?

12018-01-18 07:50:48 UTCBCNorwich Hi, The name is a park, the area has been designated a County Wildlife Site by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust, thus it is a local nature reserve. Hence the tagging leisure=nature_reserve

12018-01-11 07:27:03 UTCBCNorwich Hello there, that's a great deal better, well done. The buildings will now be rendered properly. However there's possibly a small problem with the mapping.

12018-01-09 18:29:44 UTCBCNorwich Hi, just tagging features as area=yes does not convey enough info to the database for a feature to be rendered.

12018-01-09 18:01:00 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Tagging a building with only area=yes is rather meaningless. If you don't the use of the building then building=yes. For a house tag building=house and so on.
Regards Bernard
12018-01-08 17:56:59 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The correct tag for a park is leisure=park, that would be the reason for the area not rendering properly. Both recreation ground and park are now tagged, please remove any that arn't applicable.

12018-01-05 08:59:19 UTCBCNorwich Hi, it would be good to know what the fire point actually is? Folk would then understand it and it might be rendered. Is it a hydrant, a fire place/BBQ point, extinguisher or maybe even an assembly point in case of a fire?

22018-01-04 15:20:17 UTCmeatlug thank you for the welcome - would you expect this path to now render in the standard map view?
32018-01-04 17:32:40 UTCBCNorwich Hi, yes it will render given a little time. I noticed that the school outline was duplicated and deleted one of those ways. That might slow down the re-render a bit. I can see a partial render so it should be OK.

As it is (un-joined) it is not a barrier to the road.

22017-11-08 09:48:26 UTCei8fdb Hi Bernard,

Ah, sorry. Wasn't aware (though I suppose I should have been).

I can re-add the description later. I eyeballed the street but there was no street sign.

Thanks,
Bernard
12017-11-04 07:49:20 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I looked at the Bing imagery for the location Silver Court and it looks like there is a building where you've drawn the way. Does the way go through the building or is the way misplaced?
I can see cars parked at the west so perhaps the way is through a tunnel o...
22017-11-04 09:50:13 UTC123mapper Thanks! I've had a go at putting the archway in as a tunnel as you suggest.
32017-11-04 10:20:19 UTCBCNorwich Really good job, well done!
Regards Bernard
12017-11-02 16:42:28 UTCBCNorwich Hi, just wanted to let you know you've drawn way 179278573, v1 around the Parish Hall but not tagged it.
12017-11-02 16:32:48 UTCBCNorwich Hello, regarding way (private) (521164524, v1). This was tagged with name=(private) IMHO incorrect so I've made it a note.
If actually the track is private please tag it access=private, the name tag isn't for descriptions of the way.
12017-10-25 06:08:39 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

I'm pretty sure this property is not named "Farmhouse", it's also a poorly drawn outline, I wonder if you meant to outline the whole property or just the house.
If I can help in any way please just ask.
Regards Bernard.
22017-10-31 19:45:32 UTCBCNorwich No response so this building redrawn and name removed. Also several other near buildings added.
12017-10-25 06:13:56 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

Regarding this addition of a field outline, I doubt if the proper name for the piece of land is "Farmland". The area is also poorly drawn, I can see that you have drawn around the tree shadows to the south.

If I can help in any way please just ask...
22017-10-31 19:44:01 UTCBCNorwich No response so field redrawn and name removed!
12017-10-31 07:38:38 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Building is now mapped and tagged so fixme POI/node removed
12017-10-31 07:05:27 UTCBCNorwich Hi and Welcome to OpenStreetMap, your node POI is placed in the middle of the street where I doubt the company is actually located.
I note this is registered as your office in the UK, do you maintain a physical office here?
If so then the tag office=yes or office=it can be added.
If not then the...
12017-10-23 07:26:11 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I noticed that this road section you added to the database :- "Way: Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (532376490)" is a duplication of the existing way.
22017-10-23 12:51:11 UTCDkeith apologies. still learning.
Thinks the road is on a slight different path.
road is still covered in cones.
If you could fix i would be obliged
32017-10-23 16:56:32 UTCBCNorwich No problem, the duplicate section is now removed.
I'm still learning after several years mapping, OSM is continuously evolving so there's always something new. If I can help at all please just ask. Regards Bernard
42017-10-29 00:01:07 UTCMike Baggaley Hi, I know you didn't add the name, but name=C5K doesn't look like a real name. Should this be loc_name="C5K Banchory-Devenick Road" instead?

Cheers,
Mike
52017-10-29 07:45:43 UTCBCNorwich Hi Mike Baggaley,
You are correct, it wasn't me and yes it seems wrong.
I looked up Aberdeenshire list of streets ( http://publications.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/dataset/c993f625-37ad-438a-bd28-5afe7ca6a5bc/resource/58d8fd38-2b20-45dd-9f1b-71ce210bba3a/download/south-highways-list.pdf )

12017-10-26 11:03:39 UTCBCNorwich Hello, Way: 58916901 has a self intersection on the section going towards the park gate.
22017-10-26 18:53:39 UTCBCNorwich I've now removed the ways duplicate section.
12017-10-26 10:58:37 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've amended the park area to not join onto center of highways. Joining area to the center of highways is not seen as good practice.

12017-10-25 10:43:20 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I the cul-de-sac Ditton Fields is 20mph then I would think the whole estate would be 20mph especially with all the speed humps.
Would you be so kind as to check and amend the map accordingly. This would no end of folk, Many Thanks.

22017-10-25 11:02:44 UTCrjc As you can see above, I've used SteetComplete Andoid app which basically asks Yes/No (or simple entry field) questions and it only asked about that part of the road - no idea why. My assumption was that it already had it for the rest of the road or simply would apply it automatically to it. If havin...
32017-10-25 15:57:25 UTCBCNorwich Hello, I wasn't aware of the limitations of the software. There are many apps now which all seem to provide differing ways of contributing to OSM.
I noticed your addition of the 20 maxspeed so looked at and realised the other roads on the estate were tagged as 30mph, this seemed strange hence my q...
12017-10-25 05:47:34 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Sorry to say that you have mapped two Bedford Hotels and both are in the wrong place.
The Bedford Hotel and Southampton Row and WC1B 4HD are north of the Thames near Russell Square.
The good news is the hotel is already mapped. So I'll your two incorrect POI f...

Hi, some of your buildings are drawn over large commercial areas (Nursery and Gritting Depot tagged as building=commercial). Also the park does not look right on the field edge behind houses.
At the nursery you've dragged an existing house outline out of shape.
Why mak...
12017-10-24 12:55:47 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Your new POI for Roti King is already mapped. Thus I have removed this duplication and added your new info to the existing POI.
Regards Bernard
12017-10-23 06:33:41 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Sorry to say that your changes will not close the road.
With the gate separate from the highway there is nothing to suggest that it is a part of the highway.
The node (barrier=gate) needs to be joined to the highway in order for it to be rendered or seen as a r...

I have reverted this changeset because you inadvertantly dragged a highway node from Ireland to Germany.

12017-10-17 14:10:55 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Sorry to say you've drawn the Aldi shop on top of the closed B&Q shop. Duplication of a building.
The correct way to do this change would be to change/amend the tagging on the original shop outline. Thus keeping the history of all changes to this building in the OSM database.

22017-10-19 07:19:43 UTCBCNorwich Duplicate building removed, original building tagged with new info.
12017-10-17 14:05:16 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Sorry to say that you've put the video shop in the middle of the street attaching it to the highway.
22017-10-19 07:16:33 UTCBCNorwich Shop removed.
12017-10-17 14:33:45 UTCBCNorwich Hi, The Premier Inn is already mapped in it's proper place to the east of the big car park.
22017-10-19 07:13:56 UTCBCNorwich Duplicate now removed.
12017-10-17 14:02:20 UTCBCNorwich Hello again, it looks like this changeset is also involved with the problems I mentioned in a comment on changeset 53002704
Again I'd advise this changeset be reverted.
Regards Bernard.
22017-10-19 07:12:13 UTCBCNorwich Changeset is now reverted.
12017-10-17 13:58:44 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I wonder if you realise that this changeset has deleted a lot of features and dragged other features out of shape.
It would be best to revert the whole changeset in order to ensure everything is put back as it was. Then you can more carefully make your "no ...
22017-10-19 07:11:40 UTCBCNorwich Changeset is now reverted.
12017-10-19 06:23:25 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
You can change the imagery layer in the iD editor, (click the layers icon), Esri and Digitalglobe Standard are pretty good just there.
I've amended the addresses to whats usual in OSM, hope that's OK.
Regards Bernard
22017-10-19 06:27:00 UTCBCNorwich I forgot to ask do you know they are houses? Because the building tag could be bungalow if that's a better description of the dwelling type.
32017-10-19 21:57:17 UTCSteve Fosdick They are bungalows. I choose "house" because I thought it made it clear they are residential buildings rather than commercial or industrial.

Firstly it is unlikely a hotel would be situated in the middle of a street. You have not given enough information (not even a name) for anyone to determine where the hotel is situated. You've placed a poor attempt at a post code in the house-number field.

You have managed to triplicate the outline of this building.
Only the original outline is tagged building=yes, your two new outlines are not tagged to show what the feature is.
There seems to be another company operating from this building wi...

12017-10-17 05:30:40 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Can you give more details of the guest house, address, website, property located in.
Features added to the OSM database must be verifiable on the ground and there's not enough info to determine this features position, (in a front garden). So it ought to be corre...
22017-10-17 09:32:40 UTCtrigpoint Size of building suggests that this is a very unlikely place for a guest house.

Probably yet more maps.me personal marker rubbish
32017-10-17 10:04:42 UTCBCNorwich Hi trigpoint, I agree,and a response would be unusual but I usually wait a few days so a response could be made before going back and removing fiction. Also the house numbers in the building don't look right.

22017-10-08 06:44:48 UTCBCNorwich Hi good to see you've removed the POI and added a feature. I've made minor amendments to go along with OSM best practice, (removed retail area tag from within existing retail tagged area), then added a building tag to the featusr so folk know what it is.
Many Thanks & Regards Bernard

I've added 'disused:amenity=place_of_worship' and
