Welcome to WikiProject England
Join the discussion, ask questions, and share
The Wiki currently has 85,721 articles in English

Articles about England and England research topics. Ideally a child WikiProject could be set-up for each English County which would focus on articles for county level resources and the parishes within each county. Until these are created these are within the scope of this project. Some articles cover both England and Wales and so would also fall within the scope of WikiProject Wales.
