"If the internal feature is named, it should still not be combined with the
area's name."

Unless, of course, that is what it is actually called.  There's a Netpool
Bandstand inside Netpool Park.  Not quite named Netpool Park
Bandstand, so escapes that rule (unless enthusiastically
interpreted by somebody).  But I can imagine such situations

Sometimes the enclosing area is implicit.  There is Cardigan Rugby
Football Club and many other things with Cardigan in the name
inside the town of Cardigan.  It's what it says on the signs
and/or advertising and/or website.

We shouldn't synthesise a name that doesn't exist by
adding the name of the enclosing area, but when that
is in the actual name...
