traditional (thus, probably more correct) names than the OS names e.g Pike O'
Stickle, rather than the OS (including NPE) Pike OF Stickle, or Silver HOW
rather than the OS Silver HOWE.
So what's the thing to do? Use the OS names because one can get them from a
definitely out of copyright source, or use Wainwright's probably more correct
