Removal of probable copyvio text[edit]

After following the External link to the Syon Park official website, I noticed that quite a lot of the History section of this Wikipedia article had very similar wording to the History page of the Syon Park website. The text in question was added to the Wikipedia article en masse by an anon editor a couple of weeks after the article was first created, in 2005. The fact that it was added all at once and that the editor was an anon, leads me to believe that the WP article was copied from the official site, and not the other way around. Therefore, I have removed the paragraphs or sentences where the wording was very close to that of the official site, as a probable copyvio. This prunes the History section of the article way back, and we are going to have to build it up again, but this time without copying from another website, (although the official site could be used as an information source). Any assistance from other editors here would be appreciated. Thanks, Lini (talk) 04:06, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
