If there is not a node for a village in the OSM data, then it needs
adding. While wikipedia may return the same page for the village and the
matching parish, I thought that wikidata should distinguish between a
village record and a parish one? A search for a city, town, village,
hamlet should return a node with the key data located at an appropriate
location in the place. A search for the parish should return the
boundary, but coverage around the UK for parishes is sporadic?
