It is acknowledged that the use of the <au> is not standard SWF, however, the Panel do feel that we should (as an exception) derogate from SWF in this instance. The use of the <au> graph does more accurately describe the pronunciation in a very limited number of place-names. It is also consistent with historic forms of this name.
