Where do you draw the line, Earystane, Agneash, The Cooil, Pooilvaish, The Lhen, Ballakilpheric, Little London, etc?

its an interesting question.
 

Near my holiday home there’s a road sign, marking the start of a village, 50kph speed limit. Then, bus stop, notice board, small cemetery ( with 50 ossuary niches ) church ( one service a month ) and rectory ( empty since it was burned out during the civil war )  and a barbecue area, with seven tables and benches. Then there’s a sign with the name lined through, end of village. Not a living soul.

What defines a village? Thinking back to my school geography it’s a village hall, and a population of a few hundred or so. Less than that and it’s a hamlet, population in the thousands and it’s a town.

Or maybe the presence of a current, or past, church or chapel or school room. It’s a community, surely.

Just after a suitable dropdown for Manxies to populate if they 'lived in/worked in/competed in' for an upcoming project really.

Suggest you list Castletown and Peel Separately from their parishes and then do an “other“ category under each parish where you have a village listed.
