I was going to suggest that the places in Malvern & Upton Imperial might 
be more apparant in the Caters methods which I believe were the original 
methods (the contractions to major came later and I believe Malvern is 
not yet rung!)

However on checking the CC collection I notice that Upton Imperial has 
disappeared - has it been renamed or is it an omission ?
