This wikipedia article refers to this osm feature.

and this feature refers to this article

I am under the impression that the wikipedia page will show up a map showing the feature but it has shown up for 1st but not the second.

This is because, the wiki article should have a {{Coord}} template to represent itself as a georaphic object.

As amritkarma pointed out correctly you have to edit Wikipedia to see coordinates at the article.

WIWOSM is a tool for highlighting certain objects in OSM which are connected by a wikipedia link. As far as I know only the german Wikipedia has embedded this functionality: example WP:DE

To check if entries not available in WP:DE work, you have to have a try directly on the toolserver: example Bronze and Brass Museum

You’re asking why Wikipedia doesn’t have a link to OSM, correct ? Did you consider sending your question to Wikipedia ? IMHO they should add a link on their pages, isn’t it ? They're free to do so or even do it yourself.

No, the question is about WIWOSM.
