I can skip the Schools category, if that's the community consensus.

Thanks for spotting the Warwick mistake. Q549761 is the town, Q611294 is the
local government district. I'll check to make sure there are no other
duplicates like this.

The villages matching relations are the civil parishes. The Wikidata item
represents both the village and the civil parish. This happens when the
matching algorithm can't find the appropriate village node.

I can change the code so that towns and villages only match nodes.
