Redruth for Cornwall & Ryde for IOW?

Thank you, I have corrected the Isle of Wight. Cornwall is more tricky. If Camborne and Redruth are counted as one settlement, it is indeed the largest. However, as they are two towns separated by three miles with other villages between them, I am hesitant to deem it a single settlement. If others agree with you I will be happy to defer.

It's a ceremonial county in itself. Thanks for finding this, I've updated the caveats.
