If Woburn Abbey is still the seat of the Dukes of Bedford why does the article say "In the early nineties Woburn Abbey was owned by the Tussauds Group"? Did the family sell the house and buy it back? This seems unlikely.

Who owns what and who is doing what with what they own?[edit]

I was going to ask why the article says:

"In the early 1990s, Woburn Abbey was owned by the Tussauds Group and with the help of John Wardley (creator of roller coasters such as Nemesis and Oblivion) set to build a large park. However, Tussauds bought Alton Towers instead and that is now the UK's most visited theme park attraction."

as I did not understand who owned Woburn Abbey and who set to build a park. The family? Tussauds? (It actually reads like it's the Abbey.) I see that an anonymous person has asked the same question. —Grstain | Talk 17:00, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

Books[edit]

I added a reference to The Protector's War to the page. The page I referenced does not YET contain the information I included.--Gaarmyvet (talk) 16:26, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
